Reward growing in hunt for killer of 9-year-old Chicago boy
CHICAGO (AP) — A reward offer is growing for information leading to the capture of whoever shot and killed a 9-year-old Chicago boy.
The Faith Community of St. Sabina said Tuesday afternoon that the church and other community groups have now raised $20,000.
Tyshawn Lee was shot in the head and back Monday in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood.
Chief of Detectives Constantine Andrews says that before the shooting, an argument broke out among a group of people in the alley where the boy’s body was found. Those who were in the alley left the scene after the shooting.
Andrews says it’s not clear if the child was targeted or not.
Anti-violence activist the Rev. Michael Pfleger and St. Sabina members handed out reward fliers Tuesday.
Pfleger says: “This heartless person must be captured.”
