CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

The reward for information in a shooting that left a 17-year-old girl dead has been raised to $10,000.

Kelsie Crow was struck by a stray bullet April 4 after leaving a Sweet 16 birthday party at the Walnut Hills YMCA. She died two days later at the hospital.

No arrests have been made in the case.

A father whose daughter played soccer with Crowe at Purcell Marian High School donated the $10,000 reward to Crime Stoppers.

“It is important that we bring those involved with this crime to justice,” said donator David Draginoff.

Two other teens were wounded and nearly 30 shots fired when the party spilled from the Melrose Avenue YMCA into the parking lot.

At least 100 teens reportedly attended the party, which YMCA officials claimed was a private event.

“We had no idea this event was taking place or we would have done things differently from a staffing standpoint and an intelligence standpoint to be a little bit more prepared," said Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell about the incident.

Anyone with information that could lead to prosecution should contact Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
