TUCSON - A reward of $30,000 is now being offered for information leading to the person responsible for the hit-and-run incident that fatally injured a Nogales firefighter.
The family of Sterling Lytle provided the reward poster above to News 4 Tucson, and states that a $30,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the "person(s) responsible for the murder of Sterling Lytle on 6/29/2012."
Yesterday, Tucson Police released a photo of the front grill of the vehicle found at the scene of the hit-and-run incident that left Lytle fatally injured.
The grill, believed to be from an Orange 2005 Chevrolet Silverado Sport pickup truck or a Chevrolet Avalanche, came off the truck and was left at the scene on the early morning of June 28, according to a news release from Tucson Police Department.
Anyone with information on the location of the vehicle or the identity of the driver is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME. Citizens can send anonymous text and web tips to the Tucosn Police department using a new app called TipSoft. This new program lets citizens send anonymous tips online via their iPhone or Android devices, the release states. Citizens can also send a text message to "CRIMES" (274637) beginning with the keyword "TucsonPD" from a mobile phone.
Lytle was laid to rest Monday in Tucson. The 25-year-old was taken off of life support July 3. Authorities say Lytle was hit by a truck June 28 when he stopped to confront a driver who had been following him and a friend in Tucson.
