Pastor Welton Smith of the New Life Family Church took to Facebook to announce he's matching the $6,000 reward offered by rapper Christian "Trick Trick" Mathis in the case of 6-year-old Tairaz Moore. The reward is now at $12,000.

The child was shot to death execution style in Warren last week. His dad and his dad's fiancee were also murdered.

Pastor Smith says we all have to stand up to a new kind of evil. The pastor says he's partnering with Crime Stoppers and urges others to add to the reward fund.
