No new ballistics matches; reward increased to $30,000

Authorities investigating a string of 15 shootings along Insterstate 270 in Columbus say they have no more incidents to link to the shooter.

Franklin County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Steve Martin says the task force continues to get a steady stream of tips. He also announced Friday that the reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the culprit or culprits has been increased to $30,000.

In his daily briefing, Martin says there have been no new ballistic matches to the gun that killed 62-year-old Gail Knisley as she rode in a car along 270 on November 25th.

He says all bullets turned over to the task force have been tested.
