LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A Little Rock mother is pleading for help. She is asking anyone to come forward that may know what happened the night her son was murdered a year in a half ago.
Kris Harris was only 21-years-old when he was gunned down at an apartment complex in December 2015. Some witnesses say several people ran from the scene when he was shot. His mother believes someone knows something that could help close this case.
Chercora Harris is sifting through pictures of her son Kris, not just on any day, but his birthday. These are the only memories she can now share with him on this special day.
“It’s hard and I still have my days. Ups and downs. Sometimes I still can’t sleep,” said Harris.
Kris was shot and killed in 2015 at the Stone Ridge Apartments off Geyer Springs Road. Almost a year and a half later, his murder is still unsolved.
“I just think he went to the wrong place at the wrong time, because for him to harm anybody, that’s not even the case,” said Harris.
Harris believes someone has information, “It’s crazy to me that people are still out there that killed him and no one is speaking up.”
Little Rock Police say several people witnessed Kris’s murder and they’re asking anyone who did see it to come forward.
“We know somebody saw something. They saw people or they saw vehicles,” said Little Rock Police Officer Steven Moore. “We need those people to cooperate with us.”
Harris hopes the case is solved so she doesn’t have to spend another birthday without answers.
“A lot of people say you have to forgive, but it’ll be a hard thing for me to forgive. I actually would want to know why,” said Harris.
Harris says that Kris did not have a criminal past and truly does not think that bullet was meant for him. If you know anything, you’re asked to call police. You can remain anonymous.
