The investigation related to Sunday's homicide in Derby is still ongoing, but the Derby Police Department's Chief says after conducting interviews, collecting evidence and by releasing the photo they did Sunday, they now have a name associated with the person. DPD does not have the person of interest in this case in custody right now, but Chief Robert Lee says it's just a matter of time until they do.

It wasn't Linda Williams' average Sunday morning, as she woke up to flashing lights.

"There was a police car sitting in the front and so the lights were coming through. I got up and looked out. I started counting and there were nine different types of sheriff cars. police cars...," Linda Williams, a Derby resident said Monday. "The right thing to do would be turn yourself in and do the consequences...."

Just before 3 a.m. Sunday, Derby Police officers received a report of a shooting in the 1200 block of N Westview.

"When we arrived, we discovered that there were numerous people at the scene and one of those individuals had suffered a gunshot wound. That person was transported in critical condition to a local hospital where unfortunately they later died of their injuries," Chief Lee said. 

Chief Lee says they aren't releasing the person of interests' name at this time, but they hope by releasing a photo of him, he will turn himself in.

"... to the individual that we are looking for, I would encourage you to turn yourself in. Call us, so that we can visit with you and get the facts from you, from your perspective as well, as to what occurred," Chief Lee said. ".... those folks that know him will know who it is based on the photo that was released yesterday."

So does Derby resident, Ivey Harris.

"Take charge of your own responsibility. That's what many of them are not doing," Ivey Harris, another Derby resident said. "Yes, it concerns me. You don't like it happening, but at the same time... It's happening everywhere."

Chief Lee doesn't think this was a random event. He says it appears to have started as a result of a disturbance between people invited to a particular home.

"There was a argument that led up to the deadly shooting. So, I would not think that the general public is at any greater risk," he said.

If you know where this individual may be, you are asked to contact Derby Police at (316) 788-1557, call 9-1-1, or Crime Stoppers at (316) 267-2111.

This person of interest is described as a Black male and approximately in his mid-20s with a slender build. Authorities say he has a street name of “D” or possibly “Dee."
