      The reward for information relating to the drive-by shooting on Willard Avenue has increased thanks to a donation from local business owner, BJ Fletcher.

      Officials with the Albany Police Department confirmed that the original tip reward for information on the shooting has risen from $1,500 to $2,000 due to Fletcher's donation of $500.

      Fletcher says she "hopes that the donation will have a domino effect and that other businesses will step up and donate as well."

      Anyone with information regarding the Willard Avenue case or other cases are encouraged to contact the Albany Police Department's Criminal Investigation Bureau at (229) 431-3288. If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call "Crime Stoppers" by dialing (229) 436-TIPS.
