Police offering reward for information in 15-year-old's homicide

Posted: Updated:
ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. - The Rocky Mount Police Department is now offering a cash reward for any credible information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the murder of a 15-year-old boy.

Rocky Mount Police say a teen was killed on January 18th, 2014. They responded to a call of  shots fired in the area of E. Highland Ave. at 12:06 Saturday morning.

According to our CBS affiliate in Raleigh, WRAL, authorities responded to the area and found Brian Freeman dead outside of a home.

Freeman's friends say he was walking home with a friend when a car pulled up and started firing. 

Freeman's father, Alfonzo Beverly, said his son's death could have been prevented. 

"I feel like something else could have been done besides this gang banging. It's gang related," said Beverly.

Police haven't said if the shooting is gang related, but Beverly feels that it was.

"He's been in a gang for a while now and I've been trying my best to get him out," Beverly said.

Since the initial crime, police say they've formed several credible leads but no arrests have been made. The department is offering a $5,000 reward for any credible information that leads to an arrest. For information regarding the award contact Lt. Brandon Medina at 252-343-3181.

Rocky Mount Officers and Detectives are currently investigating the case. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Rocky Mount Police Department at 252-972-1411 or Twin County Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111.
