PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 18, 2022 – The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a cash reward for information that leads to the arrest of a teen wanted for murder in a deadly ambush shooting near a high school in September.
According to the U.S. Marshals Eastern Pennsylvania Violent Crime Fugitive Taskforce, a $5,000 cash reward is being offered for information that leads directly to the arrest of 16-year-old Dayron Burney-Thorn.
Surveillance video of the shooting shows five suspects getting out of a vehicle before they fired more than 60 shots at the group of teens as they walked down the street after a football scrimmage.
One week after the shooting, authorities released images of Burney-Thorn in hopes of finding him, but weeks have passed and authorities do not have him in custody.
Two suspects, 17-year-old Zyhied Jones and 21-year-old Yaaseen Bivins, have been arrested as the search for Thorn and other suspects continue.
The $5,000 reward from the U.S. Marshals Service brings the total reward for information in the case to $50,000.
Police are urging the remaining suspects to turn themselves in.
Authorities say Burney-Thorn is 6-foot-3-inches tall and weighs 215 pounds.
