The reward for information about whoever shot up the West Deptford Township police building has increased to $27,000.

Police said today that state, county and local police associations are offering the money for tips that lead to the arrest and conviction of the person who pulled into the police department parking lot early Tuesday morning and fired seven rounds from a high-caliber gun into the building.

Surveillance video captured someone pulling into the parking lot, shooting into the building, and then driving away on Crown Point Road at about 4 a.m. Tuesday. No one was injured.

Police said the gun used was at least .40-caliber. The bullets recovered are being sent to a laboratory for forensic testing.

Authorities said this morning that investigators had some leads but had not identified a specific person of interest.

Anyone with information can call police at 856-853-4599, ext. 164.
