Bronx mother asks for help in solving son's death

A Bronx mother is seeking justice and asking for the public's help in finding her son's killer.

"He wasn't just my son, he was my partner," says Joann Soto, whose son, 17-year-old Londell Byrd, was killed just steps from his home earlier this month.

Police are offering a $12,000 reward for the capture of Jimmy Delgado. Investigators say Delgado shot Byrd in retaliation for an earlier fight.

Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
