Police were called to 26th and Parker on the city’s northeast side around 4:30 pm. When they arrived they found a vehicle with the back window shot out. Beard was found inside the car and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police tape surrounded about seven blocks and shut down traffic during the investigation. The Crime Lab was seen searching the area for evidence. Witnesses say they heard the shots but thought it was fireworks.
The search for a suspect continues. Police are asking for the public’s help in finding those responsible. Those with information are asked to call CrimeStoppers. Those calls are anonymous and there is a reward up to $25,000 for information leading to an arrest.
