Mollie Halpern: The FBI is offering an up to $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the murder of a talented musician.

Kevin Harris, II, seen here in a music video, was only 21 years old but experienced artists sought after his music.

His father and namesake, Kevin Harris, Sr.

Kevin Harris, Sr.: Ice Cube did buy one of his tracks, and it is on one of his albums.

Halpern: Kevin was known as Track Bully in the music industry.

Harris, Sr.: I love him so much, and I respect him so much, and his talent was just phenomenal.

Halpern: On September 20, 2009, Kevin was driving to a recording session at a music studio at the corner of 118th Place and Crenshaw Boulevard in Inglewood, California.

FBI Special Agent Sean Sterle says as soon as Kevin arrived, another car—possibly a 2005 Toyota Corolla—pulled up next to him.

Sean Sterle: … and approximately 10-17 shots were fired into Kevin’s car. Kevin died shortly thereafter on his way to the hospital in an ambulance.

Halpern: Kevin’s mother, Katheryn, says she has her son’s music—and it plays on. So do her memories of him.

Katheryn: I think about his beautiful face and him holding me and telling me how much he loves me.

Halpern: The FBI and its partners at the Inglewood Police Department are seeking information about Kevin’s murder.

Katheryn: I want to know who murdered my son. I want to look at them. God knows what else they might have done after my son was murdered.

Halpern: You can report tips anonymously to the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office or online at tips.fbi.gov.

With Wanted by the FBI, I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau.
