A year and a half after a Pikesville ATM operator was shot to death while servicing an ATM in West Baltimore, his killer remains at large - despite a $10,000 reward for information.

Kenneth Gerstley, 58, sales vice-president for ATM Enterprises, was shot on a Saturday morning in January 2021, while servicing a convenience-store ATM on Brighton Street.

Baltimore police had announced today that they would hold a press conference to "announce an increase in reward for information," but the press conference was "postponed until further notice."

The department did note that "detectives have been unable to identify the suspect(s)."

Besides family and friends, the ATM industry also sent condolences about Gerstley's death at the time:

The ATM industry, the National ATM Council and town of Pikesville, Maryland are mourning the loss of Ken Gerstley, 58, who was fatally shot during a robbery on Jan., 30 at approximately 11 a.m. outside a Baltimore convenience store. Gerstley, who worked for ATM Enterprises, had just filled the ATM machine in the store and walked outside when he was fatally shot.
