U.S. Marshals Office offering $5,000 reward for information in death of Shelby teen
Skyteria Poston was killed Nov. 9
SHELBY, N.C. (WBTV) - Skyteria Poston was just 16 years old when she was killed in a drive-by shooting last month. Now, the U.S. Marshals Office is stepping in to offer a $5,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest in the case.
Police say the shooting happened the afternoon of Nov. 9. They received a call around 4 p.m. about gunfire in the area of Roberts and Martin streets. Poston was found in the yard of a home on Roberts Street.
“I miss my baby. This was my second child that I had to bury for the same thing,” Poston’s mother, Mona Chatman, told WBTV Reporter Courtney Cole the next day.
