Assailants are free despite a reward

Witnesses to the Jan. 12 slaying of Terrell Rogers have not come forward, despite a $250,000 reward offered by the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice nearly one month ago.

Rogers was gunned down in a parking lot across the street from Sacred Heart Preparatory High School during halftime of his daughter’s basketball game, according to police.

Rewards are given when witnesses provide information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for a crime.

“The violence plaguing our streets will not stop without the help of every resident of San Francisco,” Mayor Gavin Newsom said in a press statement announcing the Rogers reward.
