The Chicago Police Department on Friday announced an increase in the reward being offered for information leading to the killer of Hadiya Pendleton.
Pendleton, 15, was shot to death January 29th as she stood at a bus stop with friends after final exams at her school. A boy was wounded in what police believe was a drive-by in which Pendleton was not a target. She was shot in the back and died at the hospital.
The increase in the reward came via an additional $15,000 from St. Sabina, which describes itself as “an African-American Catholic community of faith” in Chicago. The organization had previously donated $10,000 to the reward fund.
