If the tip leads to an arrest, the tipster may be eligible to receive up to $1,000.

On Thursday, December 16th at 9:54 p.m., Airways Station officers responded to a shooting on East Person in South Memphis. They found 26-year-old Jerome Brent lying in the street, suffering from muliple gunshot wounds. Brent was transported to the hospital where he later died from his injuries. His case remains unsolved, and the MPD is turning to the public for help.
