Authorities in Minneapolis are searching for those responsible for the senseless murder of a three-year old toddler.
On Dec 27, 2011, Terrell was having dinner with his family when a gang battle erupted in their local neighbourhood. Bullets started flying and Terrell and his family fled to an upstairs bedroom to avoid them. Sadly while carrying a plate of spaghetti, Terrell was struck and killed by a stray bullet that pierced his home. Despite a $60,000 reward being offered for information leading to an arrest in 2013, no witness has come forward and identified those responsible for Terrell's murder.
Thoughts? Sadly as with other unsolved inner-city murder cases featured on this forum, perhaps the only real hope of solving this case is one of the participants in the gang shootout ratting out the others involved. Sadly there is very little to work with here.

This is going to be a difficult case to solve since it seems no one in Terrell's house was an intended target and it was a result of random crossfire. Even if participants are identified, it's going to be hard to tell who shot who- how can you prove the bullet was fired from this guy or that guy or even if he was shooting (it would of course help if the type of gun the bullet came from was known narrowing down the possibilities). It reminds me of the Max Montijo La-Madrid case in which he got off because a bunch of people were randomly firing at each other at the same time.
In addition to circumstantial evidence, I hope there's ballistics evidence that would back things up if any suspects ever came to light.
