SOUTH BRUNSWICK — Police have announced they are offering a reward for information about the shooting of a gas station attendant early Sunday morning during a botched robbery attempt.

Chief Raymond J. Hayducka said police are hoping the reward will help police identify the people involved in the incident that ended with a 60-year-old man hospitalized after being shot.

"We believe there are people out there with information that can help us close this case," Hayducka said. "Our victim was just working extra hours to get ahead and he was shot."

Since the shooting, which police say happened just after 4 a.m., they are actively reviewing surveillance video and interviewing witnesses, but are looking for additional information as well.

Crime Stoppers of Middlesex County is offering an undisclosed amount for information leading to an arrest in the case, which Hayducka said can be done anonymously.

"That one call can make all the difference," he said.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Crime Stoppers at 1-800-939-9600, submit information online, or text 274637 with the keyword "midtip" and the message.
