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.
