"Every citizen needs to be held accountable for their actions and we need the citizens who witnessed this heinous act to come forward and tell us exactly what happened so that can better help us complete this case."

"We want to be able to work with law enforcement and say look, let's not have these types of things happening in our community and come together collectively to stop these types of violence that are actually taking place within the community because there are no winners in any of this," said Rev. Lorenzo White, with the Lima Area Black Ministerial Alliance.
