On March 28, roughly 200 people, primarily high school students and young adults, were at a party being held at the County Line Club near Midway when shots rang out.
Now the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office say they need the community’s support in locating two individuals they would like to question in order to piece together more of the puzzle of what happened.
Kijuan Lavarris Miller, 25, and Rashad Jamel Miller, 24, are being sought by the sheriff’s office for questioning.
According to Chief Deputy Keith Moran, Det. Julie Hibbeler has worked countless hours interviewing numerous witnesses but needs to find an additional two witnesses in order to complete the case work.
According to the initial incident report, deputies arrived at the Highway 17 building south of Midway as people were running out of the club, saying shots were being fired. Witnesses reported someone firing a gun outside the club while one witness reported a gun was fired inside the club as well.
Two people were injured during the incident.
Hibbeler said the case is important, especially because it involves school-aged children.
“We understand kids are going to gather together and have parties,” she said. “Chief Moran, the department and I want to ensure that when they do so they can do so safely. The people responsible for putting these kids at risk are still out there and we want to be able to bring them in.”
The chief said he wants to ensure the public he is still performing his duties for the department, saying he and his detectives are solving cases as swiftly as possible.
Moran said anyone with information as to the Millers’ whereabouts can call 911 or the detective division at 876-4555.
