Police did not find a suspect and declined to say what else, if anything, they were looking for.

At around 4 a.m. Sunday, nine people were shot at a large party inside of a strip mall on 28th Street east of Kalamazoo Avenue SE. Juwan Boykin, 21, was killed. The other eight victims were expected to recover.

Since the shooting, officers have been trying to locate the person or people responsible. Police say uncooperative witnesses have hampered their efforts to solve the crime.
