City offers $20,000 for information on Kingsessing shooter

    Information leading to the arrest of the man wanted in connection with six shooting at Kingsessing Rec Center will yield $20,000 for the informant.

    Mayor Michael Nutter announced the city’s $500,000 fund will provide the dough.

    Nutter was outraged yesterday when he addressed the Monday night violence that left six people hospitalized and police with little information to go on. Police are looking for a black male in his 20s, about 5’8″. He was wearing a white T-shirt and black jeans.
