LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Two stars of a realty show based in Las Vegas are asking for help. The victim of a weekend road rage shooting worked at ATM Aquariums, which is featured in Animal Planet's Tanked.

Police are still looking for the killer.

"Kid had the biggest heart I've ever seen on anybody," Matt Stafford said about his son, Kristofer Stafford, who was murdered.

Kristofer Stafford's death occurred after police said he and a friend got into a road rage fight with an unknown driver early Saturday morning near Lone Mountain Road and Rancho Drive.

"Kris got out and had a police baton or something. He whacked the back of the vehicle or something," Matt Stafford said.

While Matt Stafford agrees his son was not completely innocent, he said he knows he didn't deserve what the other driver did to him.

"The vehicle sped off, turned around, came back, and [the driver] unloaded in his chest," Matt Stafford said.

Kristofer Stafford's bosses, reality stars Brett Raymer and Wayde King, are also taking the news hard.

"Everybody here in our company we treat like family," Raymer said.

"We need some help. We need to find the people that did this. We just got to put it to rest," King said.

Kristofer Stafford worked as a lobster specialist at ATM Aquariums.

In an episode that aired in September, Stafford made a brief appearance, playing basketball with Raymer.

"Kris was a young kid. He was a go-getter. He did all the lobsters for us. He went out there. He wanted to learn the shop," King said.

"Find these people who have done this, and let us know, please," Raymer told FOX5.

Meanwhile, Matt Stafford has just one question for his son's killer.

"What were you thinking? Why?" he asked.
