MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Several billboards have been erected in North Minneapolis to help find the killer of 3-year-old Terrell Mayes.

On Dec. 26, 2011, a stray bullet hit Mayes while he was inside his home. He died a day later.

Since the shooting, Minneapolis Police homicide investigators and other officers have been pursuing information and leads, but so far the killer remains at large.

The billboards are a result of a joint collaboration with Clear Channel Outdoor, Crime Stoppers and the Minneapolis Police Department. Five billboards will be displayed.

Crime Stopper’s reward for the killer is currently up to $10,000.

    There’s no one that hasn’t heard of this case, so why bother with a billboard, it won’t make a worthless, fatherless gang banger turn a fellow waste of life in.

    @ cheers and i will laugh at you when it does bring someone in. not everyone knows about the case, because not everyone watches or reads the news. What does it hurt to have the billboards up? its that or advertising always.

    Non- human beings stick together, therefore it will be tough to break.

    I really hope this helps. It’s so sad a lil boy lost his life because of a gang banger. These gangs think they own the streets.. I hope the person who took this boys life is found. This family needs to know the killer is in jail. They need justice.
