$1,000 reward offered in McDonald's shooting case

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Central Alabama CrimeStoppers, a local nonprofit organization that assist law enforcement in solving crimes, says it's offering $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest of person or persons who are responsible for the shooting that occurred at the McDonald's on the Eastern Boulevard last Sunday, September 18, 2011

The shooting happened as children played inside the restaurant's PlayPlace center around 7:35pm.

No one was injured in the shooting, but the crime still has authorities looking for the suspect or suspects.

"We know that someone has information about this senseless shooting and we want them to come forward so we can make an arrest before someone gets hurt," said Executive Director of CrimeStoppers, Susan Moss. "Tipsters can call, email, or text us the information and once an arrest is made the tipster will get $1,000."

Moss said tipsters' identities are secret so they do not have to fear a suspect's retaliation.

Moss added that tipsters will get the reward just from an arrest, not a conviction, so they will get the money quickly.

Tipsters can call 215-STOP, text CACS then the tip information to 274637 (CRIMES), download free app (tip submit) on smart phones and send a tip, or they can visit www.215stop.com <http://www.215stop.com/> and email a tip. All text tips are encrypted.
