Father pleads for son's killer to come forward in cold case
The father of a teenage boy who was killed five years ago is pleading with the killer to come forward.
Kemar Brooks, 14, was struck by a stray bullet and killed five years ago at Haffen Park. Investigators say Brooks and his friends were at the park trying to seek shelter from the rain under a gazebo on July 26, 2012. They say a lone gunman entered the park and began to shoot, striking Brooks in the back of the head.
The case has gone unsolved, but Cassell Brooks, Kemar's father, is still hopeful that an arrest will be made. He was the one who discovered his son's lifeless body that day in the park.
"Before your life flashes before your face, turn yourself in," says Brooks.
Kemar was known for his talents on and off the tennis court, with a bigger than life personality.
Investigators urge anyone with information to please come forward and help solve this cold case. There is a $22,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
