LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The mayor of another Jefferson County community has kicked in reward money for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who killed a Kroger employee as he left work in November.

Woodlawn Park Mayor Mike Brown donated $5,000 to the reward fund on Monday. The reward now stands at $30,000.

Jack Combs, 34, was shot to death late on the evening of November 23 while walking to his car in a parking lot behind the Kroger on Hubbards Lane in St. Matthews.

Police have said Combs was specifically targeted and that his murder had nothing to do with drugs or a woman. The St. Matthews Police Department has said it is following several leads.

Last week, the city of Indian Hills donated $5,000 to the reward fund. In addition, Kroger, Commonwealth Bank and Trust, the United  Food and Commercial Workers Union, a St. Matthews attorney and anonymous donors have contributed to the fund.
