ATF offers $5,000 for leads on Morgan State student slaying

BALTIMORE (AP) — Authorities in Baltimore are offering $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of two suspects in the slaying of a Morgan State University student during a botched robbery.

News outlets report Baltimore's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering the reward in connection to the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Manuel Luis Jr.

Luis was slain outside his apartment near Morgan State's campus last week. Baltimore police spokeswoman Nicole Monroe says the suspects fired multiple shots into his car while trying to rob him.

In a news release, the ATF identified the suspects as males in their late teens or early 20s. They are considered armed and dangerous.

A GoFundMe posted for Luis' family says he was a sophomore business administration major and had served as a student senator.
