New information has emerged in the homicide investigation of 21-year-old Winston-Salem State University student Najee Ali Baker.

Authorities are identifying and interviewing everyone who was either involved in the altercation or nearby at the time it occurred.

The Winston-Salem Police Department has released still images of three men who detectives are trying to locate and interview as part of the investigation.

WSPD’s Criminal Investigations Division has not yet named a suspect in the murder of Baker, and the case is ongoing.
