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.

A NYPD detective working the murder case of 18-year-old college student Tessa Majors was previously accused of falsifying evidence in an unrelated case.

The Gothamist identified the detective as Wilfredo Acevedo who has been sued at least twice for making false statements in a previous case.

Acevedo and another officer were sued by a New York man who claimed they planted evidence in his apartment and accused him of a shooting in 2015.

The man was held in custody for one year and released after the charges were dropped.

Acevedo was sued by another New York resident who accused the detective of falsely arresting him on drug and gun charges. The city later settled the lawsuit for $50,000.

The manhunt has expanded for a 14-year-old boy believed to have stabbed Majors multiple times during an attempted robbery in a park on Manhattan's west side.

Police released three photos of the unnamed suspect and asked the public to call in with tips. The MYPD normally does not release photos of or identify underage suspects, but the boy is a fugitive and considered extremely dangerous.

The boy was being driven to a police station by a relative on Dec. 16, when, the relative claims, the boy jumped out of the car and fled at a Harlem intersection.

But investigators don't believe that story and the relative has since stopped cooperating with the investigation.

Police have a 13-year-old boy in custody who will be charged as a juvenile in the murder case. The boy told investigators that he and two friends - both 14 - went to Morningside Park around 8 p.m. on Dec. 11 to rob someone.

They spotted Majors walking alone in the park and attempted to steal her backpack. But Majors resisted and fought back.

The 13-year-old told police the 14-year-old suspect stabbed Majors in the face and upper body. She died from internal bleeding that same night.

Surveillance video supports the 13-year-old boy's account of the murder, his lawyer says.

The third suspect was taken into custody and questioned in the presence of his mother and a lawyer. He was released after he invoked his right to remain silent, police told the New York Times.

Majors was a journalism and music student in her freshman year at Barnard College when she was killed.

Anyone with information on the 14-year-old suspect's whereabouts is asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

The New York Police Department released three photos of a teenage suspect wanted in the fatal stabbing of a college freshman in a park.

The unnamed 14-year-old is accused of stabbing 18-year-old Tessa Majors to death during an armed robbery attempt in Morningside Park on Dec. 11.

A massive manhunt is underway for the boy who escaped while he was being driven to a police station on Dec. 16.

The boy was on his way to turn himself in to police when he bolted out of a car that was stopped at an intersection in Harlem. He hasn't been seen since.

Police arrested a 13-year-old suspect who is being charged as a juvenile in connection with Majors' murder.

Another a 14-year-old suspect was arrested but when investigators tried to interview the teen with his mother and lawyer present, he invoked his right to remain silent and was released, police told the New York Times.

The 13-year-old told police he and the two 14-year-old boys went to Morningside Park on the evening of Dec. 11 to rob someone.

They spotted Majors walking by herself in the park around 8 pm. They tried to rob her but she resisted and put up a fight.

She struggled up the steps and collapsed facedown on the street. A security guard spotted her and called 911. She was in respiratory distress and gasping for air when medics arrived.

She was pronounced dead at St. Luke's hospital. The medical examiner said she died from internal bleeding caused by multiple stab wounds to the chest.

Anyone with information on the suspect's whereabouts is asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

Police have arrested a fugitive twin who was wanted for a violent frying pan attack on a Clayton County woman on Dec. 12.

19-year-old twins Kyra and Tyra Faison went on the run after allegedly attacking Lyiah Elsko with a frying pan, leaving the 20-year-old woman with facial and bodily injuries.

Police said Tyra Faison turned herself in after the twins's pictures were circulated to news media outlets.

Kyra Faison is still on the run and should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who spots Kyra is asked to call 911 immediately.

Authorities say the twins kicked in the door to an apartment where Elskoe was staying and beat her about the face and head. They then dragged her out of the apartment and stole her phone and car keys.

Authorities say the brutal assault was over a man.

The twins were escalated to the top of the Clayton County Sheriff's most wanted list. They face charges including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery, robbery, burglary with intent to commit a felony in the first degree and criminal trespassing.

The twins' mother suggested her daughters have not been the same since they were jumped by a gang of 20 girls when they were 13.

Charnetta Davis told Channel 2 Action News that her daughters were followed home from Clayton Middle School and attacked by a gang of girls on May 20, 2014.

Kyra and Tyra were punched, kicked and stomped, Davis told Channel 2.

"I've never in my life experienced anything like this before," Davis said in 2014. "I feel like I've done everything that I could to help my daughters."
