Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week: Man killed by gunfire while riding in car with friend
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Crime Stoppers needs your help finding the person who shot a Milwaukee man while he was riding in a car with a friend.
The shooting happened the morning of June 8. Investigators say Runta Foster was riding in a car east near Teautonia and North Avenues, when suddenly bullets from somewhere sprayed into the car. Foster was struck multiple times and killed in the middle of a conversation.
Milwaukee police don't believe Foster was the target. Authorities are looking for a newer, 4-door, gray sedan that sped away from the scene.
While there were people nearby, police are hoping anonymous tips find the killer.
"I don't know why there are citizens of our city who think it's okay to fire off their gun. When you're engaging in this type of behavior that's completely reckless... you're not having empathy and thinking how you would feel if your loved one was the one in that situation," said Detective Rosemarie Galindo, with the Milwaukee Police Department.
If you know who killed Runta Foster on June 8, 2021, you're urged to call authorities with an anonymous tip. The number is 414-224-TIPS (8477). When you call, your number is scrambled and you never leave your name or any other information that identifies you. If your tip leads an arrest, you can get $1,000 cash.
