$5K reward offered to find shooter who killed Evanston model in Englewood

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A $5,000 reward is being offered to find the person who killed a young woman on Chicago's South Side.

Kaylyn Pryor, 20, of Evanston, was shot after visiting her grandparents in the 7300-block of South May Street Monday night.

The Chicago-based Leader's Network is offering the reward.

"We must not forget Kaylyn's tragedy in the midst of this violent week in Chicago. Our goal must be solving every murder in every neighborhood and we must combat violence by convicting every killer," said Rev. Marshall Hatch of New Mount Pilgrim Church, network chairman.

Pryor, who was just named the Mario Tricoci "Make Me A Model" competition in September, posed for an anti-violence campaign just weeks ago.

"She had such an innocence about her. It's ironic. When I took the pictures with her and the teddy bear, it was such a connection to have. Her innocence was overflowing," artist Maxwell Emcays said.
