JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Mad Dads took to the streets again Saturday in an effort to help find out who killed 22-year old Patrice Sherman last December. 

The Sherman family was there. Sherman's grandmother is a member of Mad Dads.

The group has been working now for 10 years to help break the code of silence and bring killers to justice.

Suzette Hadnot spoke of the death of her son.

"I live it everyday, in my mind and my heart," Hadnot said. 

Patrice Sherman was shot several times and found on the street outside the Treetop Apartments near Jammes and 118th on December 14.

"We just want to have peace, within our family. He was just not a son,  he was a father, a brother, he was a nephew, a grandson, he was a cousin, he was a friend, and tommorrow he would have turned 23.  I just want the individuals that did this to be brought to justice,"

Hadnot and other family membes joined Mad Dads, knocking on doors, handing out flyers in the neighborhood asking for information leading to an arrest.

Velecia Hegerle, Sherman's grandmother, was there as a member of Mad Dads, she joined after her grandson was killed.

"You always expect that it is not going to happen to you, until it actually happens in your family, and that hit me and I said I need to do something about this, so I joined Mad Dads. "

Pete and Susan Singer were along also. They were friends of Amber Bass, the young woman killed in her driveway earlier this year.

Donald Foy, 67, the Mad Dads President is often out on weekends with his group, seeking to remove killers off the streets.
