Crime Stoppers: Cash and anonymity offered for info in shooting of 9-year old

Makes no difference whether or not the girl was purposefully shot, investigators believe she was not. The idea is to get someone so careless as to fire a gun into a crowd critically injuring her out of the neighborhood and off the street.

Safety first, justice will follow, as will Crime Stoppers cash.

As for how it happened, just before 1:00 am Sunday, something went wrong within a group of 20 to 30 people who were outside on Doolittle Street, just a couple of blocks back from Tunnel Boulevard. Then, whatever the argument, things escalated.

If you are scared that telling what you know will put you or your family in danger, Crime Stoppers is the answer. Or, if a little no-questions-asked cash could help you in your current situation, again Crime Stoppers can help. We will never ask your name, so investigators will not know who you are. And we have up to $1,000 available for your good information.

“We know people out there know who the shooter is,” Emery added. “They know him; they have not come forward. We’re pleading for them to do that.”

Maybe you do not know the shooter, but you have heard something in the ensuing days. You never know what information will be valuable to investigators in getting this person off the street. We would love to hear from you.

“We don’t only wanna know who the shooter is,” Emery explained, “we want to know other names of those present so we can talk to them, as well.”

You will have to pardon officers if they seem to take this case personally.

“I actually have a nine-year-old at home with me,” Emery added, “and they should be able to enjoy the summer, have fun, be able to play outside, and again, someone not introduce a gun into an argument where shots are fired and a nine-year-old is hit.”

Help get the shooter behind bars by the time this young girl is released from the hospital. If you know anything, call Crime Stoppers at 698-3333.

Crime Stoppers: Police seek suspect leads in murder Tirrell Shropshire

Someone who may still be on the loose killed Tirrell Shropshire last April. We have up to $1,000 if you can tell us anything and we will never ask for your name.

In April of last year, 34-year old Tirrell Shropshire was shot and killed in the darkness of early morning on Rawlings Street in Orchard Knob.

“The information that we have now leads us to believe that he was targeted,” said Chattanooga Police Sgt. Victor Miller, “that it was not a random or opportunity crime. This was definitely a target for Tirrell.”

Shropshire had been at a get together earlier in the evening.

“He decided to go home for a brief moment with one of his friends,” Sgt. Miller explained. “He went inside his residence and then when he exited to go to another location. That’s when the suspect came from another home and shot Tirrell there at his residence.”

The gunman took off, leaving Shropshire to die in the driveway.

Crime Stoppers: Couple cases parking lot before stealing from vehicle

Who goes on a date in a YMCA parking lot? The duo we seek held hands as they strolled around, looking for victims. Help identify them and get yourself in line for Crime Stoppers cash.

In Crime Stoppers, another theft from someone while they were working out. It should not be the case, but it is: you just cannot leave valuables visible in your car when you park it. Our bad guys, this week, appear to be a couple, but their supposed romance may simply be a ruse to help them steal your stuff.

“If the opportunity is there, if you leave valuables in plain sight,” said Chattanooga Police Sgt. Victor Miller, “there’s going to be criminals that are looking for that and they’re gonna take the opportunity the first time they see it.”

This is not our first case with this type of crime, but this time we have a pretty good look at our perps. To the Shallowford Road YMCA we go. Our pictures and video come from surveillance cameras on the evening of June 5th.

“The suspects come in a vehicle that should stand out to you,” Sgt. Miller said. “It’s an older model SUV. It’s black in color with a brown trim at the bottom.” Looks to be an older Ford Explorer or larger.

The couple parked beside what would soon be the victim’s SUV then, tried to act nonchalant. These lovebirds apparently thought a romantic stroll would camouflage their crooked intentions.

If you have any info about this weeks case or couple, call Crime Stoppers: 698-3333

That line is manned 24/7 and we will never ask your name.

All tips are 100% anonymous.
