$20K reward to find the gunman who killed Hastings father of two


The family of a man shot to death in his front yard in Hastings, Minnesota, is now offering a $20,000 reward for information that leads to his killer.

Jason Reuter, 34, was gunned down in front of his home on Jun. 22, 2014, in what WCCO reports was the first homicide seen in the city in a decade.

The news station says his family has increased the reward (it started out at $5,000) in the hope it "will get people talking," and that they believe someone in the community has vital information that would identify his killer.

The father of two was shot in the 1200 block of Eddy Street shortly after returning home from taking his 6-year-old son out for ice cream, according to the Pioneer Press.

The newspaper notes he had an extensive criminal history, but that he was a popular member of the local community.

"We’re still continuing to follow leads in the investigation," Hastings Chief of Police Bryan Schafer told the Hastings Star Gazette. "We’re encouraging anyone with new information to contact us. We’re continuing to dig into all of it."

Anyone with information about Reuter's death can contact Hastings Police Department here.
