Hartford police announced Friday a $50,000 reward to help solve a cold case.
Nicholas Brown was shot 18 times and killed in September 2016.
“He will never see his children grow up,” said Natalie Brown, Nicholas Brown’s sister. “I will never see him get married. I’ll never know what it would be for him to be 50 years old and what his life would be like. We just want justice.”
Brown was shot on Magnolia Street in Hartford by at least two gunmen, according to police. He was taken to the hospital and later died.
The state is now offering a $50,000 reward to anyone with information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
“The investigation has been long, it has been difficult, it has been very challenging,” said Lt. Paul Cicero, Hartford Police. “Many people in this community know what happened to Nicholas Brown.”
“It is time to give this family the peace and closure that they need. You need to do the right thing,” Rev. Henry Brown said, an activist for Mothers United Against Violence. “You need to collect this $50,000 and put it in your pocket.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Hartford Police.
