Fairview Avenue shooting unsolved




Just a little over a year ago, Brian Mitchell was shot and killed in the 500 block of Fairview Avenue.

As of today, no arrests have been made in the 28-year-old’s murder.

The shooting happened on March 25, a Thursday afternoon, around 3:30 p.m. Witnesses said they saw Mitchell sitting on the porch of a home on Fairview Avenue when he was shot. But those accounts have never been confirmed by authorities.

When police arrived on the scene just minutes after the shooting, they were told Mitchell had been transported to the hospital in a private vehicle. A very short time later, he was pronounced dead by emergency room personnel.

Police released the description of a vehicle that could be involved in the shooting. They said they were and still are looking for a darker colored four-door car with Florida tags that was possibly occupied by at least three men.

No further information has been released by detectives in order to preserve the integrity of the investigation.

However, they are still encouraging anyone that may know something about the murder to come forward.

Anyone with any information should contact Detective E. Kearney at 243-7567, M. McKinney at 399-2327, or Crime Stoppers at 243-7755.
