Police say they received a call about the shooting and found Mozee in the bleachers seriously wounded. He was pronounced dead a short time later at a hospital.

The 5-year-old's injuries were non-life-threatening and the child is expected to be ok.

The search for the suspect is ongoing. A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest. 

Anyone who has information about the suspect or knows the individual's whereabouts is asked to call 911, to help bring some closure to a family who just lost a parent a day before Father’s Day.
