KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Saturday marks one year since a Kansas City man was robbed, shot and killed near 49th and Bellefontaine, and investigators are still looking for a suspect.

Authorities continue to seek information from the public in regard to the November 23, 2016 homicide of 49-year-old Arthur Lee Mourning, Jr.

Officers were investigating a shooting in the 3100 block of East 49th Street that happened just before 6 p.m. They found Mourning suffering from a gunshot wound.

Investigators say Mourning had answered his door when he heard someone knocking and was confronted by a suspect who robbed him at gunpoint and shot him.

Mourning was taken to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries and died hours later. 

Artrinae Mourning, Mourning's daughter, still has nightmares about that night that changed her life forever. 

"It's just hard, it really is," she said. "I wouldn't wish this pain on my worst enemy." 

The crime cannot be undone, but family members just want justice. 

“We just want justice," Arthur Lee Mourning III said. "That's all we want. it won't bring anything back but it will give us something.”

An additional contribution to the existing reward brings the total up to a possible $5,500.00 for anonymous information leading to an arrest through Crime Stoppers. 

Tips may also be submitted electronically at www.KCcrimestoppers.com, or by downloading the new mobile app, P3TIPS, on Google Play or the Apple iOS stores for free.
