NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A North Charleston woman whose son was murdered six years ago Thursday is speaking out in the hopes his cold case will heat up.

North Charleston Police say they have no leads in the death of Angelo President, who was killed on May 19, 2010.

President's mom says she was cooking dinner when her son got a phone call.

"He was talking to someone and he came and told me he would be right back," Tessie Bush said.

North Charleston Police say President, also known as "Reese"walked down Riverview Avenue.

Shots rang out.

Police say President ran down the street back to his house, went around the corner and to the back door. He opened it up and collapsed on the kitchen floor.

"Said someone shot me, call 911 they shot me," Bush said.

President died at a hospital.

"For any mother or any father to have children, to get news or to see something like this, it's just devastating, Bush said.

North Charleston detectives have been unable to solve the case because no one has come forward. One thing bothers Bush most.

"Not knowing who did this. To me right now it doesn't matter why, because he didn't deserve this," Bush said.

She says her son's murder has affected the entire family.

"Murdering someone trickles. You don't just murder the person, you kind of murder other people along with that person that died because he has five children," she said.

Bush says right now it's all about getting closure for her family and her murdered son.

"My family really misses him, so just let him rest in peace now, let him sleep," Bush said.

Anyone with information on Angelo president's murder should call North Charleston Police at (843) 740-2800 or Crime Stoppers at (843) 554-1111.
