The American police, who failed to arrest the perpetrator of the recent fatal shooting in Texas, and to solve this problem, set a reward worth 80 thousand dollars for his arrest.
Following the fatal shooting in Cleveland, Texas, which resulted in the death of 5 people, including an 8-year-old child, American authorities have announced an 80,000-dollar reward for his arrest.
According to the report of NBC News, the American police strongly emphasized that the attacker may be hiding anywhere.
On Saturday, American police announced that a gunman opened fire in a residential house in the city of Cleveland, Texas, and killed five people. “Francis Erupsa”, 38 years old, the suspect of this fatal shooting has been announced by the police.
The American police described the assailant as follows: “a Latino man with short black hair, armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic weapon, who was drunk and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a black shirt.”
San Jacinto Sheriff Greg Capers said police have searched a 20-mile area of the scene so far.
Capers also announced that search forces found clothes and a cell phone of the assailant while searching a rural, forested area, but sniffer dogs missed it.
He added: “The police found the AR-15 semi-automatic weapon with which he shot, but they are not sure if he was carrying another weapon or not.”
“AR-15” killed five people in a situation where this semi-automatic weapon has been in the news many times in the United States in recent years, because the Democrats have repeatedly called for a ban on the sale of this weapon, but the Republicans, citing the Second Amendment of the American Constitution on the freedom of carrying Arms, have opposed this action.
