Reward for man who killed Exxon clerk increased to $27K

HANOVER, Md. - The reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the man who shot and killed a gas station clerk in Anne Arundel County has been increased to $27,000.

Surveillance video shows the suspect walking into the Exxon station at the corner of Ridge Road and Route 175 last Thursday morning.  The man pointed a handgun and shot the cashier Rajinder Kumar.

The suspect's face is covered but Anne Arundel County police and the FBI say someone knows who the suspect is.

“We need to stop this man before he strikes again, before another innocent person is killed or injured,” said Special Agent Steve Vogt, from the FBI’s Baltimore Division.

“They need to turn that guy in. And get the guy off the streets because if he can come in here and just kill somebody like that for no reason he needs to be locked up for the rest of his life,” said Steve Bryant, who lives near the gas station and knew Rajinder Kumar.

Kumar had been working at the station to earn money to send home to his wife and two children in India.

The Anne Arundel County Muslim Council contributed $5,000 to the new $27,000 reward.

“We are in touch with the family of the deceased. We have spoken to his wife directly and we are helping them," said Riaz Ahmad, the vice president of the council.

Police say the suspect may have changed his appearance since the crime last week, or he may have left the area suddenly.

“We are in relentless pursuit of this cold-blooded killer, and we won't rest until he's in handcuffs and off our streets for good,” said Chief Kevin Davis of the Anne Arundel County Police Department.

If you have any information you are asked to call the Anne Arundel County Police homicide division at (410) 222-8610. Police say the reward can be claimed if the information leads to a suspect being arrested and indicted.
