Police are still looking for a suspect in the Utopia shooting this past weekend that killed 27-year-old Charles Allen.

At her son's vigil, Aleesha Bell says she believes her son was in fact a target at Utopia early Saturday morning.

She claims this was not the first time her son was a target by the same suspects.

She says this was the third attempt at killing Allen after shooting at his mother's house a few years back.

While police do not have enough evidence to pinpoint a suspect, Bell says Allen being targeted revolves around a previous situation.

"THESE PEOPLE HAD IT IN FOR MY SON. SINCE MY SON WAS ACQUITTED OF A MURDER. THAT'S THE REASON WHY MY SON WAS MURDERED," said Bell.

Bell is referring to a murder Allen was acquitted for back in 2018.

Allen had a lengthy criminal history dating back several years including the most recent charges back in 2020 of kidnapping, felonious assault, and rape.
