NEW YORK (AP) -- Authorities are offering a $32,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in connection with the wounding of a New York City police officer.
Sgt. Craig Bier was shot in both legs while working with an anti-gang unit last week in Queens.
Bier and his partner were trying to stop someone on a bicycle who fled. The suspect later traded gunfire with Bier.
The sergeant got out of the hospital Friday.
Police believe the suspect, John Thomas, has been in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina.
The Pennsylvania cities include Wilkes Barre, East Stroudsburg and Allentown.
The Virginia cities include Chesapeake, Hopewell, Chesterfield and Winchester.
They believe he's also been to East Nottingham, Md., and Reidsville, N.C.
Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-COP-SHOT.
