UPDATE 7/1/2021 9:00 AM EST:

Veteran members of law enforcement have come together to offer up a combined $22,000 to catch Michelle Jordan Cummings’ killer.

“I’m a mother as well,” said Rachel Byrd, the Acting Special Agent In Charge of the FBI’s Baltimore field office. “I know the pride that she must have felt bringing her son to start his new life as a midshipman only to have her life cut so senselessly short.”

If you have any tips, call 1-800-CALL-FBI.

Police believe the bullets came from a nearby shooting on Pleasant Street, where people were shooting into an empty car.

“We have detectives working around the clock,” said Annapolis Police Chief Ed Jackson. “What I would say to the shooter is: ‘Turn yourself in. We’re coming after you’.”

“As members of our Naval Academy family, we will do all that we can to support Leonard, his father and the entire Cummings family during this unfathomable time. My wife, Joanne, and I, on behalf of all of us here in Annapolis, offer our deepest sympathies,” Vice Admiral Sean Buck said in a statement.

Police said they are still looking at surveillance video and they have a few leads. Still, they’re offering up to $2,000 for anyone who has any information that leads to an arrest.

Meantime, the family has set up a GoFundMe account.
