Shaheim Carr

York City Police detectives investigating last month's homicide of Willie Hicks are looking to speak with Shaheim Carr about the crime, according to police.

But investigators have so far not been able to find 25-year-old Carr, known as "Mugga," and they are now asking for the public's help.

Carr has not been charged in relation to the crime, and there had been no arrest warrant issued for him as of Monday, according to York County court records.

Police said they have questions they'd like to ask him.

Hicks, 27, of the 900 block of Madison Avenue, died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to the York County Coroner's Office.

Hicks, Wajh S. Jamison and a third man were robbing the Panache Plus barbershop at 405 W. Market St. about 1:45 a.m. Feb. 26 when Hicks was fatally shot, according to charging documents filed against Jamison that charge him with felony firearm offenses.

Carr and Jamison were together in 2012 when Jamison and others fired guns at 21-year-old Kyle Westry, who was killed. Jamison wasn't charged with homicide because he was acting in self-defense, but he eventually pleaded guilty to firearm offenses.

If you know the whereabouts of either Carr or Jamison, police ask that you contact them right away and said tipsters can remain anonymous.
