Investigators are seeking the community’s help in solving a homicide case from ten years ago.

The victim, George Hawkins, was shot and killed while walking his dog. The Arlington Police Department is committed to finding his killer and providing justice to his family. As the anniversary of his death approaches, we ask for the public’s help in generating new leads that could result in clues to help solve this case. 
On the morning of October 26, 2010, Mr. Hawkins left his home at the Sutter Creek Apartments in the 2200 block of Plum Street. He planned to take his dog for a walk before work. At approximately 7:45 a.m., neighbors reported hearing gun shots and then discovered Mr. Hawkins lying on the ground in a breezeway. He was pronounced deceased at the scene. 
Investigators do not believe robbery was a motive in the shooting. They have followed multiple leads throughout the years, but nothing has panned out at this time.

“We are hopeful that someone who may know something will come forward with the information we need,” said Interim Police Chief Kevin Kolbye. “We ask the public to help us solve this case by shining new light on the incident.”
