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

give him a chance. We're going to go after him, we're going to go after him
hard," said Hartzell.
