The Mankato Department of Public Safety in partnership with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and family of Poth Acouth announces a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for his death. Investigators are confident numerous eye witnesses saw this incident and encourage people to come forward.

"We believe there are people who can help solve this case quickly and help bring closure to the Acouth family," said Detective Commander Deb McDermott.

Background: On April 20, shortly before 2 a.m., Acouth was shot and killed during an altercation in the parking lot of the Kato Ballroom. Three other males sustained non-life threatening gunshot wounds. Acouth had attended a Sudanese cultural event at the Kato Ballroom following a basketball tournament at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Investigators do not believe this was a random incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 911 or 507-387-8774, or to use the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension tipline at 1-877-996-6222 or bca.tips@state.mn.us.
