GREENSBORO, N.C. — Friday marks 15 years since a man was fatally shot in Greensboro, and investigators are still searching for whoever is responsible for the murder.

Guilford County Sheriff BJ Barnes says Christopher Bowe was found shot multiple times on Aug. 16, 1998 near the intersection of Sharpe Road and Trox Street.

Sheriff Barnes says investigators believe a vehicle chase occurred just before Bowe was killed. Bowe had just left a friend’s home on N.C. A&T State University’s campus and was returning home at the time.

In addition to a Crimestoppers reward of up to $2,000, a Governor’s Reward of $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (336) 641-5966 or Crimestoppers at 373-1000.
