The police have not arrested anyone in connection with the shooting to death of the university student in Windhoek in March this year.
Naeman Amakali, a student at the Namibia University of Science and Technology, was shot during a road rage incident involving the driver of the taxi he was travelling in and another driver.
Amakali was shot along Hans-Dietrich Genscher street.
Deputy Commissioner Abner Agas said the police are still investigating the shooting and that there are no leads.
“We would like to encourage the general public out there to contact the police in case they have any information that can lead to the arrest of the culprits in the shooting incident. The case is still open, and we are investigating,” he said.
Agas also said the identity of any member of the public would be kept confidential once they come out with information that can lead to the possible arrest of the shooters in the incident.
 The deceased had his brother in the taxi who also took a bullet in the chest and another person also got wounded.
It is alleged that the driver in the unidentified car got out and pulled out a firearm after which he randomly fired 12 rounds after an argument erupted between the victims and suspect.
