The murder of an Iraqi man in Dallas has caused a southern Muslim group to work closely with police.
Dallas police confirmed that Ahmed Al-Jumaili, was shot and killed outside his apartment last week as he watched his first snowfall.
At this point in time, no motive has been determined.
On Monday, the Muslim group offered a $7,000 reward to solve the case.
The executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said there was not enough evidence to say whether the shooting was a hate crime.
Al-Jumaili arrived in Dallas less than a month ago. He stayed in Baghdad longer than the rest of his family so that he could save money and bring it to them – the Dallas morning news reported.
On the night of 4 March, Al-Jumaili and his family stood in the car park outside their apartment complex watching the winter weather.
As his wife, Zahraa, took pictures of the snow, Al-Jumaili was hit in the chest after multiple shots were fired from a rifle, police said.
He later died at a local hospital.
Over the weekend, police released surveillance footage of the four male suspects fleeing the apartment complex on foot.
Police say initial indications suggest there was a parking space dispute but they are investigating whether Craig Hicks was motivated by religious hate.
Hicks gave himself up to police and has been charged with killing Deah Shaddy Barakat, wife Yusor Mohammad and her sister Razan.
But many felt the murders were sparked by something far deeper than a parking row.
