MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis Police Department is investigating a fatal shooting that happened in the 1500 block of Stribling Street Saturday.

Investigators said the victim was found sitting in his car. They said two men approached the victim from both sides and opened fire. The two men then ran away.

Police confirmed the victim was 35-year-old Quincy Jett.

Friends of Jett described him as a truly nice man, and they want those who took his life to come forward.

A father and son standing nearby witnessed the entire shooting. 

"The black guy got in the car and turned it on, and then two black men walk up and they said 'Let's go kill that man in the Grey car,' and the other guy said 'OK' and they did," the boy said. "It was so scary, and I felt so sad about him." 

The boy said Jett was shot in the chest and the head.

"It's too scary for me, and I asked my mom 'Can we move?' but she doesn't want to," the boy said.

Friends said they have one thing to say to the men that took Jett's life.

"Turn yourself in," one neighbor said. "Make it right. If it happened, it happened, but you need to make it right. People care about him."

This is an ongoing investigation. Police have not located the two shooters.

If you have any information that could help police, you are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
