TULSA, OK -- Three people questioned in connection with Tulsa's 24th homicide of the year have been cleared. 

Tulsa Police say they need help to find who's responsible for killing 18-year-old Jason Trent and seriously wounding a 9-month-old baby.

Trent was killed, and 9-month Clinton Kellum was hit in the back with a stray bullet.

Police say the bullet missed the child's spinal column, and he underwent surgery at a Tulsa hospital.
