The reward increased once again for information in the shooting death of a grandmother outside a bingo hall.

Crimestoppers Chairman Joe Yannessa announced Monday that three Jacksonville businesses came forward to offer supplemental rewards. Marine Federal Credit Union, TNT Bingo and Carmen Realty have each pledged up to $2,500, bringing the total reward to $22,500 for information leading to an arrest in the death of Kim Hua Flournoy.

The 65-year-old was shot and killed on Dec. 30, 2012, outside of TNT Bingo on Henderson Drive in Jacksonville. Police said they believed robbery was the motive.

The suspect was being described as a black man, police said. He reportedly fled from the area in a white or silver Dodge or Chrysler four-door sedan.

Those with information in this case were asked to call Crimestoppers at 910-938-3273. Callers may remain anonymous.
