An off-duty DC police officer was killed almost exactly a year ago, and now officials have raised the reward for information leading to an arrest to $60,000.

40-year-old Sergeant Tony Mason, a former Metropolitan Police officer, was killed while visiting Baltimore almost exactly a year ago.

Mason was shot around 12:45 a.m. on November 4, 2017, in the 2800 block of Elgin Avenue. Detectives believe Mason and a 43-year-old woman with him were sitting inside of a parked car when an unknown suspect approached the vehicle and began shooting.

Mason was found with a gunshot wound to his body and the woman with him had a gunshot wound to her leg. Both victims were transported to an area hospital where Mason died from his injuries.  

No arrests have been made in his death, so the FBI Baltimore, ATF Baltimore, and the Baltimore Police Department are teaming up to get the community to come forward with tips. There was originally a $20,000 reward offered for information leading to an arrest, but officials have now raised it to $60,000.
