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