Reward doubled to $40,000 in child's shooting death

     (AP) – The reward for information leading to the arrest and

conviction for those responsible for the fatal shooting of a 2-year-old Little

Rock girl is being doubled to $40,000.

     The city of Little Rock announced Wednesday that it’s adding $20,000 to an

already existing $20,000 reward for information about the Nov. 22 shooting death

of Ramiya Reed.

     Police have said the girl was riding in a vehicle with her mother and others

when someone fired shots into the vehicle.

     No arrests have been made and no suspects identified.

     The girl’s death was the first of two fatal shootings of toddlers within a

month in Little Rock.

     Police say 3-year-old Acen King was shot and killed Dec. 17 while riding in

the back of a car drive by his grandmother.
