CHICAGO — A $10,000 reward is being offered for information about the slaying of Northwestern student Shane Colombo.

Colombo was shot dead Sept. 2 near the Chicago-Evanston border when he got caught in the crossfire of two people shooting at each other, officials said. They released photos of three men they said were involved in the shooting, but no one has been charged in Colombo’s death.

But an anonymous donor has donated $10,000 that will be rewarded to the person who shared information that leads to the conviction of the person who shot Colombo, according to a Chicago Police news release.

Anyone with information about the shooting can contact police at 312-744-8261 or submit a tip anonymously online.

“The love of my life and partner was shot and killed yesterday. He is the most handsome, brilliant and quirky man I know,” Vincent Perez, Colombo’s partner, wrote in a post on Facebook after the shooting. “I will miss you, Shane.”

Colombo’s mother, Tonya Colombo, shared a photo of her and her son at his graduation, writing on Facebook, “I miss you, my baby. Shane, I remember this day well. I couldn’t stop crying … tears of joy.”
