Philadelphia Police announced a $40,000 reward in the shooting death of a 32-year-old man in Society Hill on July 1.
Police announced the reward alongside the family of Michael Hagan Jr., a Drexel graduate and IT consultant at a press conference Monday.
“I think the initial call was they thought there was a drunk on the street. When they rolled Michael over, they saw the gunshot wound and that’s was when police were contacted,” Hagan’s uncle Ed Couture told NBC10.
Police believe Hagan was the victim of a robbery gone bad. Both his keys and wallet were missing when he was found.
The $40,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder. Funds for the $40,000 reward are being put up by the city, the Citizen's Crime Commission and New Jersey State Police.
“He was one of the good guys,” Couture said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Philadelphia Police.
