CINCINNATI – More than six years later, and the death of a 24-year-old Cincinnati resident is still puzzling police.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine asked the public Thursday for information regarding the shooting death of John Harris in 2007.
Harris was shot to death outside his home on Fergus Street in Northside on June 7.
According to police, robbery was the primary motive for the crime. Officers said Harris had just returned home from visiting relatives in his hometown area of Lincoln Heights when he was attacked.
The attackers stole Harris' car and his necklace, which was known to attract attention due to its value.
Harris' car was found nearby, but the suspects evaded capture after a high-speed pursuit that ended in Walnut Hills, police said.
DeWine said Cincinnati Police Homicide Unit detectives are continuing efforts to locate anyone who may have information regarding Harris’ death.
"Although it has been over six years since this horrible tragedy occurred, we will continue to work on seeking justice for the Harris family," said Detective Greg Gehring. “Any information from the public is appreciated, and we encourage anyone with information to contact the Cincinnati Police Department or BCI."
Detectives with the Cincinnati Police Homicide Unit can be reached at 513-352-3542.
