A 17-year-old cheerleader who graduated from high school just a week ago was ordered to her knees then shot in the head in an execution-style killing this week in New Jersey.

Cheyanne Bond and her ex-boyfriend were both shot while walking down the street Sunday night in Newark. He survived. Police don't yet have a motive for the brutal attack. They've issued a $12,500 reward for information in the case and are searching for two men who were seen on video surveillance footage walking in the area.

"They told her to get on her knees and they shot her in the head execution style," her uncle Michael Bond told CBS New York. "Just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time."

The family said Cheyanne's college money would be used for her funeral.
