They're the ones who gives us a call and let's us know this is what happened and this is who did it and this is why they did it. That's our intelligence. That's how the public can help us. That's how the public can help us help them," said Sgt. E. Duron Thompson.

Police are trying to determine if the shooting had anything to do with a gang initiation.

If you have any information that could help police find Lamons, call crimestoppers at 436-TIPS.
