The task force investigating three sniper-style killings in Kanawha County, W.Va., is offering a $50,000 in federal funds as a reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the gunman.
The Charleston Daily Mail says Charleston Police Chief Jerry Pauley considers the reward the best way to pique public interest in the case, which waned after national media stopped covering it.
The first shooting attributed to the sniper occurred Aug. 10 outside a convenience store. Then two people were killed within 90 minutes of each other at rural convenience stores about 10 miles apart on the night of Aug. 14.
The .22-caliber bullets that killed each victim likely were fired from the same weapon.
Though no suspects have been arrested, police want to question the driver of a dark-colored extended cab pickup truck that was parked near one shooting scene.
