DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Crime Stoppers hopes a surveillance photo might help catch a killer.

Dominique Gentry, 19, was fatally shot September 30, 2013 while driving in the area of North Orchard and Edison Avenue.

Detectives are now trying to identify a person of interest who was seen on nearby surveillance video and is possibly involved in this shooting.

The way he walks may give him away.

“This person has a distinctive gait, arms swing side to side so perhaps someone will recognize him,” said Detective Casey Cantrell, Dayton Police Department.

Police say the man was driving a maroon Cadillac Eldorado at the time.

The family of Dominique Gentry has seen that surveillance video, but they don’t recognize the man.

They know that someone out there has the answers they need.

“I would ask you to please come forward. I know you’re not resting because I’m not resting. We are a God fearing family. God knows and sees all you’re not going to be able to rest come forward to give us some closure,” said Crystal Gentry, victim’s mother.

Call Crime Stoppers at 222-7867 if you recognize the man in the surveillance. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
