PHOENIX – A reward of up to $100,000 is being offered by Phoenix police in the shooting death of a man almost four years ago.

Ed Forst was stopped in his car in the 2700 block of W. McDowell Road when two men approached him and shot him while he was in the driver’s seat on June 21, 2007 at about 1:30 a.m.

Forst drove the car east on McDowell crashing into several objects before coming to a stop at a convenience store at 27th Avenue and McDowell Road. The victim died.

Both suspects are described as Hispanic men. One of them was between 25 and 28 years old at the time, had a shaved head and was wearing a white sleeveless shirt and jean shorts. The second suspect was between 20 and 21 years old at the time and had a thin build.

Two vehicles seen leaving the crime scene are described as a 1990s black Nissan Altima with Arizona license plates and a 1990s dark blue or green small four-door sedan.

Family and friends of Frost will gather on Saturday between 8 and 10 a.m. in the northwest corner of 27th Avenue and McDowell to hand out Silent Witness flyers with reward information.

Several individuals were seen fleeing from the area. Anyone with information is asked to contact Phoenix police or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
