$10K reward offered in cold case killing of school teacher Dawn Reddick in Newark

It's been five years since a Virginia grade school teacher on a visit to her hometown of Newark was fatally shot while waiting for a takeout order at a Chinese restaurant.



On the anniversary of 29-year-old Dawn Reddick's death, the Essex County Sheriff's Office on Saturday offered up to a $10,000 reward for information on the person or persons responsible.



Reddick was apparently the unintended target of the June 30, 2011, shooting that injured three others, including a child.



She was raised in and around Newark and graduated from Newark's Arts High School. Reddick taught third grade at Clark Elementary School in Charlottesville, Virginia.



Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose urged anyone who might have information about the crime to contact the Essex County prosecutor or Newark police.
