WETUMPKA, AL (WSFA) - Terri Butler tries to hold back tears as she looks at pictures of her dead brother, Bo Hudgens.

"We're going to miss him...an awful lot," says Butler.

She got the news Thursday afternoon.

While working at a local apartment complex, Bo had been shot and killed in an attempted robbery.

He and a co-worker were laying tile in one of the units when a man with a gun walked in, demanded money, and after a struggle, shot Hudgens.

"You're angry and you're sad.  And it gets hard. You can't describe it. I can't describe it because it's not supposed to happen," says Butler.

She anxiously waits for police to find the suspect.  And while they do have leads, no one's in custody.

Butler hopes the shooter's friends or family members will help ease her pain.

"There's somebody out there that knows who did this to him. They know it, they know who did it."

In the meantime she prays police catch the killer soon.

"Just don't let him get away and do it to somebody else. That's what I don't want. I don't want somebody else to go through what we're going through right now."

Butler says too many people are.

"At what point is the city going to come in and say enough is enough?"

Butler says she's struggling to forgive the shooter.  But knows she must do it in order to move on.

A memorial fund for Bo Hudgens is set up at the Compass Bank on Atlanta Highway.

If you have any information that might help police solve this crime, call Crimestoppers at 215-STOP.
