HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The reward to find the person who police say ambushed three Harris County Precinct 4 constable deputies is now at $75,000.
The newly increased amount was announced Wednesday during a Houston police news conference regarding the Oct. 16 incident outside of a north Houston nightclub where Deputy Kareem Atkins was shot to death. Two other deputies, Darryl Garrett and Juqaim Barthen, were also wounded.
The amount includes $10,000 offered by Crime Stoppers of Houston, $40,000 from billionaire Tilman Fertitta, and $25,000 donated anonymously. Fertitta chairs the Houston Police Foundation.
The 100 Club of Houston also disclosed donating $20,000 to Atkins' widow and two small children.
Houston police made the announcement just a couple of hours after Deputy Barthen left the hospital to an emotional tribute by his colleagues.
Barthen, who was wounded in the leg, received an ovation from his co-workers who waited to greet him at Memorial Hermann hospital.
