Minneapolis police announced Tuesday that a $60,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of Terrell Mayes' killer.

Terrell, 3, was fatally shot inside his home on the 2600 block of Colfax Ave North the day after Christmas in 2011.

Terrell and his brothers ran for safety in an upstairs closet as gunfire erupted outside their home, the Star Tribune reported. Terrell was struck in the head by a bullet as he climbed the stars and died the next day.

Police are still looking for the person responsible.

Spotlight on Crime is offering $50,000 and Crime Stoppers is putting up another $10,000.

A billboard campaign will also be launched to help find a suspect.
