Warren police are offering a $3,000 cash reward for information related to the fatal shooting of a woman who was being chased by a car carrying five females following a pool party.

The police department Wednesday released photographs of the women they are looking for in connection with the death of Johnice Clark, who died after she was struck by gunfire during the chase.

“This was a senseless, violent, vicious act where a defenseless victim was brutally murdered,” said Police Commissioner William Dwyer.

He added it would be in the women’s best interest to turn themselves into police and cooperate in the ongoing investigation.

“Otherwise, when this all goes down, there’s a possibility all of them could face charges of conspiracy,” he said.

Clark, 26, of Detroit, is believed to have had an argument with one of the women Saturday night at a gathering at a house on the 14500 block of Colpaert Drive, in the area of Schoenherr Road and Masonic Boulevard. Witnesses told police the two had a dispute involving a man.

Clark then called a friend and asked to be picked up from the party. After the friend arrived, Clark left with her in the friend’s car. Witnesses told police the five women got into a Ford Fusion and began chasing them.

One of the women fired several shots at the vehicle, one of which struck Clark, according to police. The incident took place on Schoenherr Road between Masonic and 12 Mile roads.

The driver pulled in a parking lot of a 7-Eleven store, located at 12 Mile and Schoenherr, and ran inside begging for help. Clark was transported to an area hospital where she was declared dead.

Detectives executed a search warrant at the site of the party, and found an illegal marijuana growing operation in the basement. The homeowner was arrested in connection with the grow operation.

Authorities are asking for the public’s help in the investigation and identifying the women in the photographs. That’s why they are offering the reward.

Dwyer said the department offered the reward to bring the case to closure.

“Her family is absolutely despondent about the loss of this young woman,” said.
