The reward offered for the capture of the man or woman who shot two Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies grew to $675,000 on Thursday.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors initially authorized a $100,000 reward for the shooter. But public outrage over the shooting sparked private donations that pushed the reward to nearly $700,000.
The reward includes $75,000 from the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs and $25,000 from the L.A. County Metropolitan Authority.
The rest of the cash came from private donors, ABC affiliate KABC reported.
Two sheriff's deputies -- a 31-year-old female and her 24-year-old male colleague -- were shot multiple times by an unknown assailant who walked up to their patrol unit and opened fire around 7 p.m. local time on Saturday, Sept. 12.
The male officer was released from the hospital this week after being treated for a gunshot wound to the arm.
The female deputy is still hospitalized with 5 gunshot wounds to the jaw and upper chest.
Police referred to the shooter as a Black man about 28-30 years old. But witnesses say the shooter was a brown skinned or Hispanic woman.
