FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Detective James Kraszewski of Detroit Police Department Homicide Section and the family of Aaron Beasley came to Fort Wayne Monday in hopes of catching the person responsible for Beasley's murder.
Detective Kraszewski says they believe the shooter is still in Fort Wayne.
The father of Aaron Beasley, Keith Beasley, along with other family members, are grieving, but working hard to find who murdered their loved one.
"I hope and pray that no one else goes through this. I've been watching Crime Stoppers for years. I never thought I'd be sitting at this table making this kind of statement," Beasley said.
"If he would drive 3 hours to come to Detroit to take a person's life for some material then drive back, [there] ain't no telling what this guy would do," he added.
Police believe the person in the surveillance photo is the third person responsible for the crime.
"First we found one individual who we've identified as Quantray Brown, who is currently in custody," Krazewski said. "He contacted Mr. Beasley via social media to set up a marijuana purchase. Mr. Beasley has a license to sell marijuana in the state of Michigan."
Another person from Fort Wayne, provided the transportation for himself and the others to drive back and forth from Michigan to Indiana.
"The third individual who is yet to be identified and is the reason why we're here asking for your help. He accompanied these two individuals. He is ultimately the one that pulled the trigger and killed Aaron Beasley," Kraszewski added.
They are urging everyone to be careful, because the shooter is armed and dangerous.
"It could happen to someone here and I do not want to see that happen," says Keith Beasley. "That's why we're pleading so hard. Not just for Aaron, for his family, but for people here in Fort Wayne, so they're not going to have to be sitting up here."
Unfortunately, because a lot of people use nicknames, that's all police had to go on at the time to make an arrest, but there has not been a name provided yet for the third person.
Krazewski said Detroit Police would not have the info they have without the help of Fort Wayne Police and are very grateful for their help.
Investigators in this case are asking that the public utilize the Detroit Crime Stoppers phone number at 1-800-SPEAK-UP and/or the Fort Wayne Police Department's detective bureau number at 260- 427-1201 for any tips to report.
