Local group adds to Petersen reward, family prepares to bury Laylah

A local group called Citizens for Urban Justice posted a video online asking for people to come forward with information to help the investigation.  They say they'll match the $5,000 reward offered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, & Explosives for any information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.  The family will have a funeral for Laylah Petersen Wednesday at Our Lady of Good Hope Church in Milwaukee.

The family does not want flowers instead they've put together a website for donations.

Give Forward Site to help Petersen Family

Peterson was killed when two men sprayed her grandparents' house with bullets last week Thursday. Police have said the house was deliberately targeted, but they haven't said anything about a motive. On Tuesday, Peterson's classmates at Northwest Catholic School will hold a private service in her honor.
