Crime Stoppers of Michigan on Tuesday announced a $3,000 reward for tips leading to an arrest in a fatal drive-by shooting reported last spring on Detroit's west side.

DreVaughn Tellis and his friends had stopped at a Exxon gas station in the 12700 block of Eight Mile at about 11 p.m. June 15 when someone in a grey Chevy Impala or Malibu opened fire, investigators said in a statement.

The car in the attack was captured on a surveillance camera at the station.

The 22-year-old father and a customer pumping gas were struck, according to the release.

Tellis died from his injuries at a hospital, police said. The other person survived.

DreVaughn Tellis, who worked as a handyman, hoped to open a candy shop, friends said.
