January 22, 2010 (CHICAGO) --There are a series of billboards on Chicago's South Side offering a reward for information on the death of a young man.Fr. Michael Pfleger is offering a $5,000 reward in the murder of Deontae Smith. The 19-year old was gunned down during a block party last August.
Two billboards went up today at 56th and Halsted and 63rd and Morgan. Another will be posted later in the month.
Fr. Pfleger of St. Sabina Church hopes the reward offer will lead to an arrest in the unsolved shooting.
