SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Five years ago Saturday, Julian Cartie was shot and killed in downtown.

Saturday evening, Julian Cartie's family made the trip up from New Britain, CT, with the hope of still finding the person responsible.

"We've got to keep it in the public eye and hope that someone, anyone, speaks up and says something," said Michael Peterson, Cartie's brother.

A little more than two dozen people gathered at the corner of Main and State streets on Saturday night, which was close to the exact location that Julian Cartie was shot and killed.

Peterson said that his 25-year-old brother was not a troublemaker.

"He loved to have a good time," said Peterson. "He was a three-sport athlete, a great guy all around, a typical inner-city life. (He) struggled with the grades, joined the National Guard, came out here to have a good time, and that was the last we've seen of him."

Julian Cartie's family said the loss of their loved one has not eased over time.

On Saturday, family members handed out fliers to those passing by, wanting to see the person who shot and killed Julian Cartie brought to justice.

"There's no real closure," Peterson stated. "There's just a slight sense of comfort knowing that there isn't an individual who could take someone's life and just live freely."

Since the killing five years ago, Julian Cartie's father put up a $10,000 reward for anyone with information leading to the killer.

He said police have surveillance video of the shooting, but it is not enough for them to go on.

"I'm asking for help," said Selwyn Cartie, Julian Cartie's father. "If anyone in Springfield has seen something, please contact the Springfield police and help me to solve this case. Thank you."

CBS 3 reached out to the Springfield Police Department on Saturday about Julian Cartie's murder.

Sgt. John Delaney said detectives are still working on the cold case, but they are hoping for some assistance from the public.
