Businesses are pitching in to increase the reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of the man who fatally shot a Racine police officer who tried to intervene in an armed robbery.

The Kenosha Sheriff's Department said Saturday the reward to arrest a suspect in the death of officer John Hetland has now grown to $64,500. It was at $42,000 Friday.

Hetland was off-duty when he was fatally shot about 9:40 p.m. Monday when he tried to intervene in an armed robbery at Teezers Bar and Grill. Authorities say Hetland jumped over the bar and confronted a masked, armed man when he was shot.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 262-656-7333.
