The Auburn Police Division is asking for the public’s help as part of an ongoing investigation into a February 2018 homicide.
Responding officers discovered 30-year-old Cedric Jerome Parker Jr., of Auburn, lying outside a residence suffering from a gunshot wound on Feb. 15, 2018, according to Auburn police.
At about 10 p.m. Feb. 15, 2018, Auburn police responded to a report of multiple shots fired within a housing community in the 900 block of Old Mill Road, according to previous reports.
When officers arrived, they found Parker dead outside a residence.
Based on the preliminary investigation, police said they determine the shooting stemmed from a previous conflict between the victim and individuals known to him.
Parker was pronounced deceased at 11:02 p.m. by an EAMC emergency room physician, Auburn police said in a release Thursday afternoon.
A $5,000 reward has been secured through the Alabama Governor’s Office with the efforts of a local state representative, Auburn police and the Lee County’s District Attorney’s Office, according to the news release.
