Investigators look at weekend shooting; Tips slowing

The number of tips called into investigators probing the southern outerbelt shootings has slowed.

It has been more than two weeks since authorities linked a shooting to the string of shootings near the southern portion of I-270.

There was a shooting over the weekend. a bullet struck a house on refugee road. Chief Deputy Steve Martin says lab technicians are testing the bullet to see if it matches any others.

Martin says investigators and the public are learning there a lot of gunshots in that area.

The rate of tips has slowed. In the first days after the death of Gail Knisley investigators took some 200 tips a day. on Sunday, there were only 25 tip calls.

Martin says he's not worried the tip well running dry. He says investigators have 1975 tips to go through.

The reward in the case stands at $30,000.
