Lane Briant puts up $50k reward for the head of Lane Bryiant shooter.

Lane Bryant Parent company, Charming Shoppes Inc. offered a $50,000 reward for information on the suspect who killed a manager and four customers during a robbery at its Lane Bryant store in Tinley Park, Illinois.

The money was added to $5,000 put up today by Cook County Crime Stoppers, the group's chairman, George McDade, said.

The five women were killed yesterday at the Brookside Marketplace store during a ``robbery gone bad,'' said Sergeant T.J. Grady of the Tinley Park police department. Tinley Park is a suburb southwest of Chicago.

The suspect, described as a black male about 5 feet 9 inches tall and between 230 and 260 pounds, was wearing a waist-length black winter coat, a black cap and dark jeans, Grady said.

Tinley Park Police Chief Michael O'Connell today released the identity of the victims, including the 42-year-old store manager, Rhoda McFarland. All had died of gunshot wounds. He declined to discuss the possibility that a sixth person survived.

Lane Bryant is a unit of Bensalem, Pennsylvania-based Charming Shoppes.
