WICHITA, Kansas -- Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County is teaming up with the Wichita Police Department to increase its reward for tips on cold case homicides.
This week's case they're focusing on is 19-year-old Justin Cook.
Cook was shot and killed on January 25, 2009.
Cook was attending a party at the Cambridge Suites hotel in the 700 block of South Main Street.
A second party was also being held at the same location.
A fight broke out in the hotel parking lot between several rival gang members who were attending both parties.
