The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the murder of Alaysia M. Bennett.
On December 21, 2016, at 12:10 a.m., Alaysia M. Bennett was a passenger in a parked vehicle in the 2400 block of West Washington Street in Springfield, Illinois. She was fatally injured by a gunman who fired multiple shots into the vehicle after exiting the rear sliding door of a black van (possibly a Dodge). The suspect was described as having a slim build, was of average height, and wore a black sweatshirt. The suspect used a handgun, and should be considered armed and dangerous. Submit a Tip: If you have any information regarding this case, please contact the FBI's Springfield Field Office at (217) 522-9675. You may also contact your local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
Thoughts? I read an article where Alaysia's mother doesn't believe her daughter was the intended target, so this sadly may be another case of an innocent victim being killed thanks to just being caught in the crossfire of senseless gun violence.
