CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Investigators are asking the public to help them determine out who fatally shot a teenager eight years ago this month.

18-year-old Tyree Clark was killed and two others were wounded in a shooting at the North Fairmount Park Recreation area on Sept. 16, 2013, Det. David Gregory of the Cincinnati Police Department said.

It is unclear if Clark was the target.

Det. Gregory says he believes there are witnesses who are withholding information.

“Not everyone who was out there that day came forward as a witness. And I think there are people out there who know exactly who did this,” the detective said.

He adds that he hopes witnesses will come forward because he wants justice for the victim’s family.

“Other people who may have been the target, who haven’t come forward, I think you have a moral obligation, not to the police, but to the family,” Det. Gregory said.

Clark’s mother says her son was a small guy with a huge personality and that he was a father of a baby girl born just weeks before he was killed.

Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040 or the CPD Homicide Unit at 513-352-3542.
