LAKEWOOD, Colo. — The Lakewood Police Department is asking for the public's help in locating two people accused of killing a pregnant woman and her unborn child during an "ambush" nearly one year ago.

On Feb. 28, 2023, Melanie Massay, 22, was shot and killed in the 1300 block of Zephyr Street during an "ambush" by multiple people, according to Lakewood police. Massay was pregnant at the time, and her unborn child was also killed in the attack.

In January 2024, the department issued arrest warrants for first-degree murder for seven people:

  • Monte Hayes
  • Isaac Pierrie
  • ReaAsia Hollins
  • Trinity Walker
  • DaJanah Abrams
  • Jrayla Taylor
  • Jaliyah Burks

Hayes, Hollins, Walker, Abrams and Taylor have been arrested and are in custody at the Jefferson County Jail. Lakewood police say Isaac Pierrie and Jaliyah Burks are on the run and considered armed and dangerous.
