A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of a teenager wanted in connection with a murder case that has spurred an intensive investigation in the City of Akron.
The U.S. Marshals Service Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force has announced that a reward of up to $5,000 is available for information that leads them to the capture of 17-year-old Adarus Black. Black is wanted for the shooting death of 18-year-old Na’kia Crawford.
Akron police say Crawford was shot several times Sunday afternoon while she was in a car around E. North St. and N. Howard St. Crawford died later at Akron Summa Hospital.
Congressman Tim Ryan issued a statement following the shooting. “My heart broke when I heard the news of this senseless loss of life. While this murder is still under investigation and we have more questions than answers at the moment, the truth is that Na’kia Crawford should still be with us today,” said Ryan
In addition to Adarus Black, police have issued warrants for the arrests of Jaion Bivins, of Akron and Janisha George, 24, of Tallmadge on charges of obstructing justice.
Anyone with information concerning any wanted fugitive can contact the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 1-866-4WANTED (1-866-492-6833), or can send a web tip at the following webpage www.usmarshals.gov/district/oh-n/index.html. Tipsters may remain anonymous

Thoughts? Based on local and national articles, Black, Bivins and George were still at large at least as of June 19th, 2020.
And I am also placing the manhunt for all three suspects in the Fugitives on TV section since it has been covered on at least the websites of national news networks such as CNN. It was initially feared Na'Kia Crawford's senseless death was racially motivated during this current time of protests following the death of George Floyd, but it is now believed by police that Crawford was killed because of mistaken identity.
In any case, this a really sad story and hopefully justice will come for Na'Kia sooner rather than later.
UPDATE: All fugitives with the exception of Adarus Black were eventually captured by November 2020. On Tuesday, November 10th, 2020, Black was said to still be at large and was added to the FBI's wanted fugitives listings on their website. The website listings states anyone with information on his whereabouts may now also contact their local FBI field office or nearest American Embassy or Consulate
UPDATE #2: As of October 13th , 2021, anyone with information on this fugitive's whereabouts can also can also call or text "In Pursuit" on the Investigation Discovery channel at 833-378-7783 and/or submit a tip at the show's website: www.InPursuitTips.com
