TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Toledo Police have double the reward for information leading to the arrested an conviction of the their most wanted fugitive, Tyrone Hoskins.

Police say Hoskins, also known as Little T, shot and killed Michael Williams Junior back on February 2. His alleged accomplice, Rishad Williams, has already been arrested in the case.

Police say last time they increased a reward, it worked. Marquise Walker was arrested in Arkansas just days after the reward offered for him was increased.

Hoskins had taken to Facebook to proclaim his innocence, but has since dropped off of social media, police say.

"He's not on Facebook. He's disappeared out of site. His family is not cooperating. That's why we are offering $2,500," said U.S. Marshal Rodney Hartzell.

Hoskins is 5'7" tall and weighs about 250 pounds. He has two tattoos on his arms. One reads "Gates RIB," the other is a rose with the name "Melinda."

Marshals say Hoskins has tried to make a deal with them, but they are not interested.

"We have received info that he will turn himself in after the prosecutor provides evidence to his family or him in the case, which we're not going to wait for. We're going to go after him just like the other ten homicide suspects we've arrested this year. We're not going to give him a chance. We're going to go after him, we're going to go after him hard," said Hartzell.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestopper at 419-255-1111. Information that leads to an arrested and conviction could get you $2,500.
