LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - An additional $25,000 has been added to a reward being offered for information leading to the arrest of the suspect or suspects who killed a Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputy.

Louisville Metro Police, the FBI, and the ATF have said top priority is being put on the investigation of sheriff’s deputy Brandon Shirley’s death. Shirley was shot and killed while working off-duty as security at a car lot on Thursday.

A $50,000 reward had been offered leading to the arrest of the suspect or suspects involved. Now, the Louisville Metro Police Foundation announced an additional $25,000 is being donated to the reward fund.
