Police Shooting-Reward

Two people will split the 100-thousand-dollar reward offered for tips leading to the arrest of a police shooting suspect.

But the suspect's grandmother will NOT be one of the recipients.

Denver Metro Crimestoppers officials say 50-thousand dollars apiece will go to two unidentified informants whose tips led authorities to Raul Gomez-Garcia.

He was sentenced last month to 80 years in prison for the 2005 shooting death of Detective Donald Young, and the wounding of his partner, Jack Bishop.

Gomez-Garcia's grandmother was the one who tipped off Mexican authorities that he was there.

But Crimestoppers says because it's NOT an international organization, it can't give money to anyone outside the United States for assistance.
