Billboards seek clues into Mpls. 3-year-old's murder

Billboards will go up this week seeking information about who fired the shot that killed a north Minneapolis toddler the day after Christmas.

Three-year-old Terrell Mayes was inside his home when he was struck by a stray bullet fired from outside. He died a day later.

Police are still investigating the case. Sgt. Stephen McCarty with the Minneapolis Police Department says there will be five billboards, all seeking information.

"There's going to be an image of the child on the billboard, and they'll just ask for anybody who has any information about Terrell Mayes' killer to please contact Crime Stoppers," he said.

The Crime Stoppers' reward for information in the case is now up to $10,000.
