Police offer reward for suspected murderer 

The police say the reward for information to capture suspected killer Calvin “Burger” James is $25,000. 

Late yesterday, they said the new offer was a correction to their earlier statement which indicated that the reward was $5,000.

Lawmen apologised for the error and urged residents to be on the lookout for the suspect.

 James has been evading lawmen for eight days since he allegedly shot and killed his niece Tahisha Thomas and her sister in law Sanchezca Charles, while he allegedly also shot and injured his nephew Lawrence James.

The wanted man has been described as armed and dangerous and lawmen are urging residents not to approach him if or when seen, but instead contact the Rapid Response Unit at 764-2348 or 464-3938 or to call 911. 

An appeal has also been for Calvin “Burger” James to surrender himself at any police station with his attorney or family member, immediately.
