Officials with the Albany Police Department have announced that another area business has donated to increase the reward for information in the Willard Avenue shootings.

Last week, business owner BJ Fletcher donated $500 and hoped that other businesses would step up and match that donation.

APD officials say that Nobles Enterprises has added in $500, increasing the total reward to $2500.

Officials add that if a business wants to donate, they can make checks payable to Albany Area Crime Stoppers.
