    A Miami family wants answers and justice in the death of a 55-year-old man who was shot and killed in front of his home almost two years ago.

    Arnold Joyner Jr. was shot to death outside his home in the 3100 block of Northwest 48th Terrace in May 2011, police said.

    Joyner was working on his car when a gunman approached him, confronted him and shot him multiple times as Joyner put his hands in the air. The shooter, described as a black male by police, ran from the scene.

    Joyner's family held a news conference at Miami Dade Police Department Headquarters Friday to request assistance from the public in finding his killer.

    "We've all been dealing with it in different ways, it's been very emotional, it's been heart-aching that the crime has not been solved yet," brother Bryan Joyner said. "We've just been doing it through prayer, we lean on each other as a family unit and it's hard to know that my father left this world not having this crime solved about his son's death."

    Joyner Jr. was a long time hotel worker who came from a big family.
