SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Shreveport Police Officer Thomas LaValley’s service weapon is still missing, and police are raising the reward in hopes of finding it.

The Times reports (http://bit.ly/1QnjXce ) anyone with information leading directly to the location of LaValley’s Glock .22 40-calibur handgun will now receive $5,000. That’s $2,000 more than originally offered.

Shreveport Police first asked for help in finding the weapon Aug. 19, two weeks after LaValley was killed. Police believe LaValley’s alleged killer, Grover Cannon, took the gun, possibly shot Lavalley several times with it and fled.

A Caddo Parish grand jury has been hearing evidence this week from the prosecution. The grand jury trial is set to resume Oct. 13.

Anyone with information on the gun’s whereabouts is urged to call police at 318-673-6955, CrimeStoppers at 318-673-7373 or visit www.lockemup.org .
