As police in Akron continue to look for leads to help solve last Friday's shooting death of Kenmore High School junior Willie Brewer III, others continue to ask for any witnesses to contact police.
Akron City Council President Marco Sommerville says it's not realistic to sit back and watch police try to solve a crime when nobody is offering information the need to do so.
"This is just craziness," said Sommerville. "It's up to the community. It's not so much up the police. The police are going to do what they do. But do you know something? Somebody knows about this. Somebody has information and they need to talk about it and tell us so we can get these people off the street."
Sommerville says holding back information only gives criminals more power to commit more crimes because they know it's more difficult to get caught.
Sommerville's funeral home is working with the Brewer family on final arrangements for the Kenmore High School junior. He says it's almost too much to take.
And just to have them go through what they went through, and the agony and the pain and the tears. It was just something that, even as a funeral director - and I've been at this a long time, I just can't get used to," said Sommerville.
Funeral arrangements for Brewer have not yet been announced.
