FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $3,000 for information leading to an arrest in connection to a Flint murder.

Jaquez Adams, 19, was found dead on the sidewalk on the 2500 block of Bonbright Street in Flint on Jan. 8 about 11:50 a.m.

He had been shot multiple times, Crime Stoppers said.

Normally, Crime Stoppers offers a $2,500 reward, but Adams' family added an additional $500.

Police believe the incident happened late Sunday night or early Monday morning.

"I'm just going to miss him so much," said Sheila Engram, Adams' grandmother.

She and the rest of her family is trying to cope with Adams' death.

"We have hope. We do. We hope that someone will look at our family and say, 'hey, that could've been us' or 'that has been us before,'" said Mokresha Adams, the victim's sister.

She said her brother was an extraordinary, kind and thoughtful person and she can't imagine why anyone would want to hurt him.

"A lot of kids looked up to him and a lot of people did love him and still will love him. His spirit lives on with us," Mokresha Adams said.

If you have any information on this case you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-422-JAIL.
