— Deputies from the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office will canvass the Shaw Heights neighborhood in Fayetteville Wednesday afternoon, hoping to find new leads in the April 2014 shooting that left a 3-year-old dead.

Multiple gunshots were fired into a home on Peele Street during the middle of the night on April 25, 2014, and one of them hit Ahmad Daniels in the chest. Ahmad died the next day at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

Authorities have released few details about what may have led up to the shooting, and no suspects have been named.

One of Ahmad's family members told WRAL News that "jealousy" led to the crime, but they didn't elaborate.

Deputies had raided the mobile home park a week before the shooting, confiscating drugs and firearms, but it's unclear if the two incidents were connected.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at 910-323-1500 or 910-677-5548.
