Authorities hope $100,000 in reward money will lead to the capture of a gunman who shot a Los Angeles school policeman.
The money was offered Friday for information leading to the arrest of a suspected car burglar who injured Officer Jeff Stenroos on Wednesday outside a Woodland Hills high school. The officer's armored vest stopped the bullet and he's recovering at home.
Thousands of youngsters were held in their schools for hours as police scoured a 7-square-mile area but the gunman wasn't found.
The City Council voted $75,000 and three police associations contributed another $15,000 in reward money. City News Service says David Gold, who founded the 99 Cents Only store chain, offered an additional reward of $9,999.99. Councilman Dennis Zine then took a penny from his pocket and made it an even $10,000.
