It has been more than a month since the brother of a Philadelphia minister was gunned down near a busy intersection.

With no new leads, the family of Kevin Drinks is now adding a little incentive to help find his killer.

"I can't figure out, for the life of me, who would want to kill Kevin. Who would want to kill Kevin Drinks?" said his wife, Keyna. She said her husband was a kind man who always wore a smile.

"Everybody that knew Kevin loved Kevin. First impression, last impression - a nice guy," Keyna said.

Kevin Drinks, 50, was also the father of three daughters, a grandfather, and a man who loved attending church where his brother, Stanton, is senior pastor.

Kevin was killed on Saturday, December 10th. That morning, he was on his way to his job at a furniture store and had called his wife to say he had found her the perfect Christmas gift.

That was the last time they spoke.

Kevin left work at the end of his shift at 6:30 that night and had just parked the company truck along the 900 block of North Watts Street in Spring Garden.

Shots rang out and Drinks was hit three times in the chest.

A month-and-a-half later and police have no leads.

"Nobody can figure out why this guy has been shot," said Santo Montecalvo of the Citizens Crime Commission.

The family of Kevin Drinks is offering a $2,500 reward to help find the killer. Anyone with information can make an anonymous call to the Citizens Crime Commission at 215-546-TIPS.
