2 suspects sought in Stevens player's death

Daveon Jordan shot to death Monday night

SAN ANTONIO – As of Thursday night, there had been no arrests in the Monday shooting death of Stevens High School football player Daveon Jordan.

Jordan, 18, was gunned down Monday night at a vacant lot in the 1200 block of Longmont Drive, near South Ellison and Marbach.

However, Euraline Byrd, Jordan's grandmother, said they didn't know what had happened to him until the next morning.

"His mom was trying to call and text because he knew he had a curfew and he had to be home at10 p.m.," said Byrd. "And the whole time that she was trying to do that, he was already dead."

On Thursday, police released a report that shows that witnesses on the scene where Jordan was found laying face down were "uncooperative," only stating that they heard guns going off and heard someone asking for help.

According to the report, Jordan was found with a jacket wrapped around his head.

A small black revolver was found on the ground between Jordan and his friend, Roderick Lee, who was also shot.

Police said they tried asking Lee who shot them, but that he kept shaking his head and was hesitant to give his name to police.

Byrd said she believes Jordan may have been trying to help his friend.

"My grandson shouldn't have went that way," Byrd said. "He was trying to save a friend. So, in my eyes, he was a hero."

According to the police report, after speaking with two of the witnesses on the scene, police are looking at two possible suspects in this case.

If you have any information on what happened Monday night, you are asked to call police.
