The Salisbury Police continue to seek the public’s help in locating a second suspect in the shooting death of Abraham Iman Jenkins.

Jenkins, 19, was killed Monday afternoon at the corner of West Horah and Institute streets, just a few blocks from home.

The department said it is appreciative of the people in the community who have come forward to assist them in the case. No motive has been given, but investigators say they continue to look into what happened that day.
