Police found the boy, identified by local media and a church pastor as Antonio Smith, shot multiple times in a South Side backyard on Wednesday afternoon. The pastor, the Reverend Michael Pfleger of St. Sabina's, said that besides offering the reward, the South Side parish plans a vigil at the shooting location Thursday evening.
