Now, Crime Stoppers from Summit County, Ohio, are offering a $ 50,000 reward for case information.
Na’kia Crawford, 18, was killed Sunday. And while calls were pouring in to police, no arrests have been made yet.
“We have already dedicated hundreds of human hours to this crime and we will continue to do so,” Akron Deputy Chief of Police Jesse Leeser told a news conference on Tuesday.
Witnesses told police a black sports car with tinted windows stopped just behind Crawford’s white Chevrolet Malibu. The suspect, or suspects, pulled himself to the driver’s side of the Malibu and “fired multiple bullets at his car.”
Crawford was taken to hospital with multiple bullet wounds, where she later died. Her grandmother was not injured in the shooting, Leeser said.
“Someone knows something,” Leeser said, begging the public for help in finding those responsible.
Crawford is a recent graduate of Akron High School and planned to attend Central State University.
“The future she dreamed of was stolen from her,” Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan said.
The Crawford family donates $ 20,000 for a starting prize of $ 5,000. Another $ 25,000 was donated by Dr. Cliff Deveny, president and CEO of Summa Health. The Stop Stoppers award is currently $ 50,000, Akron police said.
