A $10,000 reward has been announced for information leading to an arrest in the killing of a 25-year-old Bronx woman.

Priscilla Vasquez, a mother of three, was fatally shot last Saturday morning by a gunman who sprayed a Melrose street with bullets, authorities said.

At least one round struck Vasquez in the back of her head as she stood with friends outside a school on East 152nd Street near Courtlandt Avenue about 5 a.m., according to police.

Detectives are hunting Vasquez’s killer, who was caught on surveillance footage committing the homicide.

Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
