Investigators sending out reward fliers

Investigators looking into a series of shootings near a Columbus highway are sending out fliers about a $40,000 reward in the case.

So far, a special task force has linked 18 shootings along or near a southern stretch of Interstate 270. One shooting killed a 62-year-old woman.

About 20,000 fliers are being sent to residents in the southern part of Franklin County. Officers also have gone door-to-door in neighborhoods near the shootings.

More than 2,600 tips have been called in to a hotline.
