NYPD offers $10,000 for information on NYC Hoop star Darius Lee’s killer

The NYPD is offering up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the shooting death of a rising college basketball star who was killed by a stray bullet on Father’s Day in Harlem, cops said.

Darius Lee, 21, was not the intended target when he was hit by a stray bullet at around 12:30 a.m. on June 20 in Harlem during a wild 13-gun shootout with dozens of shots, police said.

He was among nine people shot dead at a party hosted by local rapper Troy “Rich” Rhymer, authorities said at the time. There were seven male and two female gunshot victims.

Lee, a local basketball star who played for Houston Baptist University, was the only person to die in the mass shooting.

The NYPD’s CrimeStoppers, a partnership between the NYPD and the New York City Police Foundation, will pay up to $3,500 upon arrest and indictment, and the NYPD will pay $6,500 upon arrest and conviction of those responsible.
