CATONSVILLE, Md. — ATF Baltimore is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in a deadly home invasion that claimed the life of YMCA coach Jordan Taylor.

Taylor was shot and killed the night of November 5, after two men broke into his home on Clifton Avenue.

On Facebook Taylor's mother said that he died protecting his wife in what she called an act of pure evil.
