DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The reward for information that could lead authorities to the man accused of shooting a Daytona Beach police officer now sits at $200,000, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
According to a news release, an anonymous donor contributed another $100,000 to the existing reward that could lead to the arrest of 29-year-old Othal Wallace.
The suspected shooter fled Wednesday night and authorities have been searching for him since then, expanding the search into other states as well. Wallace was last seen driving a gray 2016 Honda HR-V with the California license plate number 7TNX532.
