Austintown Police Detectives are reaching out through social media in hopes of solving a cold case involving a murder.

A post on the department's Facebook page says it was eight years ago Tuesday that 31-year-old Odomie Wellington was murdered in the township.

On December 4, 2010, a suspect opened fire on two men in a car outside the Westchester Executive Apartments.

According to police someone walked up and fired several shots at Wellington, who was sitting in the driver's seat.

A passenger in the car was wounded but managed to run to a nearby apartment to call 9-1-1.

Police are asking anyone with information, no matter how small, to contact them via the tip line 330-270-5108 or on Facebook private message.

Police say all tips will be kept confidential.
