JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The reward for information in the shooting deaths of 13-year-old Jazmine Shelton and 14-year-old Megan Simmons has reached $10,000.
The families of the two girls held a news conference alongside officials of the JSO and the Justice Coalition Friday morning.
The Justice Coalition announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible.
JSO raised the Crime Stroppers reward from $3,000 to $4,000.
A private Crime Stoppers board member is also offering a $1,000 reward.
The families of the two girls are pleading for anyone with information in the case to come forward.
"I am begging, if anybody know anything to please come forward. I need to know who's done this to my child. She's all I had," said Kylie Simmons.
Megan Simmons died Wednesday night after being taken off life support.
Her family attended the visitation of her best friend, Jazmine Shelton, on Thursday night.
The girls' grandmothers were childhood best friends, and until the visitation, did not realize they were raising childhood best friends.
"They were laugh-together, play-together best friends, and that was good. Now, they're being buried together," said a spokeswoman with the Justice Coalition.
