DES MOINES, Iowa — The search continues for suspects in Des Moines’ latest homicide.

Scott Perez, 44, was shot late Thursday night. He was the father of Scalicity Boyd Perez, who died last year in a high-speed car crash.

The crash happened not far from the deadly shooting in the area of 40th Place and Crocker Street just before 11 p.m. Thursday.

Police say they’re still trying to piece together a suspect profile. They say they’re still unsure if the shooting is connected to the conviction of Troy Mure Junior. He was driving the day that Perez’s daughter was killed.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Des Moines Police Department at the number on your screen.

And if you’d like to help the Perez family, friends have set up a GoFundMe account. They’re aiming to raise $7,000.
