DETROIT (AP) - Federal investigators have increased the reward to $50,000 to solve the shooting of U.S. District Judge Terrence Berg during an attempted robbery at his home in Detroit.

Detroit FBI chief agent Paul M. Abbate announced Thursday that the U.S. Marshals Service is adding $15,000 to the reward fund. The FBI is offering $25,000 and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering $10,000.

Authorities say two young men accosted the 55-year-old Berg on March 5 on the front porch of his home in the University-Golf Course district on the city’s northwest side. He is recovering from a leg wound.

The FBI says people can give tips by phone or online.
