Family pleas for closure after teenager killed Feb. 16 in Savannah

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Two weeks after a teenager was killed in Savannah, detectives are actively searching for the person responsible.

Tristin Gray, 17, an aspiring anesthesiologist and Johnson High School student was shot and killed on Pennsylvania Avenue on Feb. 16.

Thursday, the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department updated the public on the progress of the case. Gray's family also took to the podium, asking for witnesses to come forward.

"Our family would love some closure. This is something that was completely unexpected. He was graduating in three months and we were looking forward to that and now it's been taken away from us," said Ashley Harris, Gray's cousin.

Metro's lead investigator on Gray's case says they are actively pursuing leads but they can't do it alone. They are asking for anyone with information to speak up.

So far this year, there have been eight homicides in Savannah.
