Police continue to seek information regarding the homicide of Tamba Karmor Nyorkor.
 
They were called to the 9700 block of Clocktower Lane in Columbia on Oct. 8, 2008  at 7:30 p.m., after a woman reported a man inside an apartment appeared to be injured or deceased.
 
Paramedics and police arrived and found Nyorkor dead from a gunshot wound. He was 26 years old. Paramedics also found his two toddler aged children inside the apartment, neither were injured.
