3 Months Later, Police No Closer to Finding 3-Year-Old’s Killer

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Monday marked the three-month anniversary of the shooting that killed a 3-year-old boy in north Minneapolis, but police say they are no closer to finding the person who fired the fatal shot.

Terrell Mayes Jr. suffered a gunshot wound in the head as he was going up the stairs inside his home the day after Christmas. Investigators say they believe the bullet came from a nearby alley. The bullet penetrated the wall of the home before striking Terrell. He died the next day.

Minneapolis Police Sgt. Stephen McCarty says they are still counting on someone coming forward with the information they need.

“We sure hope and pray that they’ll call and give us whatever information they have so we can try and solve this horrific crime,” McCarty said.

A $10,000 reward is offered in the case.

“Beyond the monetary rewards that are being offered, I would like to think that somebody’s conscience would get to them and they would feel compelled to help us.” McCarty said.
