'We know who you are': Police asking those with information in 4-year-old's death to come forward

SAPD: 'We know there are people that know who did this'


Less than a day after announcing a person of interest in the death of 4-year-old De-Earlvion Whitley, the San Antonio Police Department took to Facebook Saturday afternoon to ask those with anymore information on suspects in Whitley's murder to come forward.

"We know there are people that know who did this," the post said. "We know who you are. Come talk to us and you can remain anonymous."

READ THE INITIAL REPORT: 4-year-old boy killed, mother wounded in drive-by shooting 

Whitley was struck by a stray bullet during a drive-by shooting in his East side neighborhood earlier this week. 

On Friday, two separate vigils were held to remember Whitley. During one of the vigils, SAPD Chief William McManus informed Whitley's mother, Cece, they had a person of interest in the shooting death of her son.
