SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) — A reward is being offered to help find who is responsible for the deadly shooting that happened during Indianapolis 500 race weekend outside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

On May 24, police say 25-year-old Max Levine, of Kokomo, was shot and killed in the 4900 block of West 30th Street at the Coke Lot.

Police had arrested 19-year-old Avory Johnson on a preliminary charge of murder in the case, but the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office said it wouldn’t file charges against him. The Speedway Police Department admitted it made a mistake while investigating the murder.

On Tuesday, the Speedway Police Department tweeted out a Crime Stoppers flyer, that said a reward of up to $1,000 was being offered for information leading to felony arrests.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS (8477).
