Cops offered a $10,000 reward Tuesday for the arrest of a brazen gunman who killed a young mom with a stray bullet in Bronx.

The NYPD offered the cash in exchange for the public’s help in solving the slaying of Cindy Diaz, who was hit in the chest and arm on Boston Road near E. Tremont Avenue in West Farms about 5:40 p.m. Friday.

Paramedics rushed Diaz to St. Barnabas Hospital, where she died.

“She was an innocent person,” Angel Rosario, Diaz’s former longtime boyfriend and father of her four children, said Saturday. “All she was doing was getting food for her kids.”

Police believe the gunman was targeting a young man standing near Diaz who was grazed by a bullet. The wounded man, who showed up for treatment at Jacobi Medical Center after the shooting, has refused to cooperate with investigators, police sources said.

Cops released surveillance video of a suspect Monday.

The reward includes $2,500 from Crime Stoppers and $7,500 from the NYPD upon arrest, officials said.

Anyone with information in regards to these incidents are asked to call the NYPD‘s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1800577TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 188857PISTA (74782). All calls will be kept confidential.
