GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Investigators say they are continuing to search for suspects in the shooting death of young Greenville father Everardo "Eve" Campos.

Witnesses tell FOX Carolina Campos, 23, was shot to death outside of his home in front of his fiance and very young children Friday night along Dixie Circle. Deputies haven't released a motive at this time, but witnesses believe it may have been an attempted robbery.

Campos' family said he was returning home Friday when two men approached him as he was getting his daughter out of her car seat of their vehicle. Witnesses said the two men said something unknown to Campos. He responded by telling them he would call the police, and that's when he was shot.  

The Greenville Sheriff's Office said this is the eighth homicide in the district 25 area of Greenville County since January. Campos' case at this time becomes the fourth unsolved homicide.   

Family and friends of Campos gathered Monday night for his memorial service. They said they are in shock and disbelief that they have to say goodbye to a loving friend.

"He was a big bundle of joy," said family member Janie Alvarez. "He had a big smile. He was a joker. He liked to play jokes, dance and laugh with his girls."

The family is pleading the public to come forward with any information they may have about what happened by calling Crime Stoppers at 864-23-CRIME.

Campos was the sole provider for the family. A fundraiser has been set up in his honor to support his family and pay for funeral expenses on this website.
