A gun that was potentially used to kill a 19-year-old in Edgewood is still missing weeks after the incident occurred. 

On August 3, police say 19-year-old Thailek Jacob Willis was killed during a potential drug deal in the Edgewood High School parking lot. Yasin Powell, 16, and Jaylin Brown, 15, were charged with murder and an investigation revealed two guns were used when the homicide happened.
