Judd said the teen is apparently a gang member and may have been formally documented as a gang member on Monday.
“So at this point in the investigation we need calls, we need help, and anonymous phone calls to Crimestoppers will get you five thousand dollars cash for just telling us who murdered this 15-year-old boy,” said Judd.
