St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - A "person of interest" is being questioned in connection to the murder of a Saint Louis University alumnus over the weekend.

Twenty-three-year-old Megan Boken was killed on the afternoon of August 18 at the intersection of Maryland and N. Taylor. She was in her car when she was fatally shot in the neck.

Police described the suspect as a black male with a medium complexion, standing 5'8" to 5'10" with a thin build and short hair. He was wearing a grey charcoal shirt, khaki pants, and white tennis shoes.

Police do not believe Boken knew her shooter and are investigating the case as an attempted robbery.

Megan Boken, a 2011 SLU graduate, was a living in the Chicago area. She was in town for an alumni volleyball game on Saturday.

CrimeStoppers initially posted a thousand-dollar reward in the case, but that was quickly added to following $10,000 donations from the Washington University School of Medicine and from the Central West End Neighborhood Security Initiative. An anonymous donor contributed another $10,000 on behalf of friends of Megan Boken.

The reward was increased to $20,000 Tuesday in the case of a murdered former Saint Louis University volleyball player.

Megan's friends added to the previous $10,000 reward announced Monday for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person who shot and killed 23-year-old Megan Boken.

NewsChannel 5 will have more information on this story as it becomes available.
