DENVER — The reward for information into the deadly shooting of a man outside the Denver aquarium in mid-February has been increased by Denver police in the hope that a suspect can be brought to justice.

Dacien Salazar, 19, was killed in a drive-by shooting on Feb. 14 near the Denver aquarium. At the time of the shooting, the reward for information was $2,000.

On Thursday, however, police raised that amount to $3,000, as they continue to search for the suspect behind the deadly shooting.
