Howard County police are now offering up to $10,000 for information regarding the September killing of the son of former University of Maryland football coach Mike Locksley.
Police said Meiko Anthony Locksley, 25, was shot and killed on Sept. 3 in the 5500 block of Harpers Farm Road in Columbia.
There have been no viable leads in the case regarding a suspect so far, according to police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn.
Police believe the killing may have been a drug-related robbery based on evidence they have gathered, but are not releasing any specific details while the investigation is ongoing, according to Llewellyn. They do not believe Locksley’s death was random.
In September, police offered up to $5,000 for information regarding Locksley’s death. Investigators hope the increased reward will encourage people with information to come forward, Llewellyn said.
A resident in the area called police shortly after 10 p.m. Sept. 3 after hearing a gunshot and finding Locksley suffering from a gunshot wound outside. Police have determined that Locksley was also living in the area at the time of his death.
