BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - Family, friends and Brockton city officials are pulling together to come up with a reward for an arrest in the hit-and-run death of a popular city man last month.

Carlevan Yancey was struck as he crossed busy Belmont Street one night last month and still no arrest has been made.

Mayor Bill Carpenter tells The Enterprise he is working with HarborOne Bank to establish an account for the reward. It will likely be $5,000.

Yancey’s mother, Darhl Ellison, says friends and family are willing to help.

Yancey, a Shaw’s supermarket employee and teacher’s assistant at the Goddard Alternative School, died after being hit by a silver or gray minivan Sept. 28 just a few days before his 32nd birthday.

Carpenter says as time goes on, the trail grows colder.
