KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Kansas City, Kansas, police and officials with the Greater Kansas City TIPS Hotline have increased the rewards offered for information on who was responsible for the drive-by shootings of two children.

The Kansas City Star reports 10-year-old Machole Stewart was killed in October outside her family’s home in Kansas City, Kansas. Three months later, 7-month-old Ja’Quail Mansaw was fatally shot in January.

The reward for information leading to an arrest in Machole’s death was increased on Wednesday to $7,500, while the reward for an arrest in Ja’Quail’s death is now $5,800.

Information in both cases can be given anonymously by calling the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
