SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) Investigators are seeking the publics help finding suspects in a 10-year-old freeway shooting that turned deadly. 

The shooting began with an altercation between two rival gangs on the West side of Salt Lake City in January 2009. 

After the altercation, officials said Ceasar Ramirez and his brother got into a green Jeep Grand Cherokee while Matthew Day and two others got into a black Nissan Maxima where they continued their argument on Interstate-15. 

They say a short time into the argument, shots were fired from one car to the other causing the death of Ceasar Ramirez.

Matthew Day was convicted of manslaughter later that year. Investigators with the Department of Public Safety’s State Bureau of Investigation have since been working on the deadly freeway shooting. They believe Day was the driver of the Nissan however, they do not believe he was the shooter. 

Investigators say they are revamping their efforts in the hopes that someone will speak up after 10 years. They are offering a $5,000 reward for information that will directly lead to the arrest and conviction of the two remaining suspects.

DPS is hoping to gather enough information to hold all individuals accountable for their actions. 

A media briefing will be held on Tuesday at 2 p.m. where both vehicles in the shooting will be on display. If you have any information that may help with the investigation contact the Utah Department Public Safety office at 801-887-3800.
