As police continue to search for the suspects behind a mass shooting that killed one woman and injured 12 others at a West Point nightclub, a reward for any relevant information is being offered.

On Monday, officials agreed to increase the reward money to $6,000 if a tip leads to an arrest. At this time, at least 20 people have been interviewed, but according to District Attorney Scott Colom, they believe some of the statements given so far are false.

“We know there are people that have information that has not been truthful. If you are a person who has given statements to law enforcement and you know you have been untruthful, I would warn you that there may be a consequence to that because we’ve got some indication that some people are untruthful about what has occurred,” Colom said.

“You need to turn the page, tell the truth, and get on the right side of the law. We’re going to have a wide approach because we know there were some people that gave information that has not been truthful.”

The investigation has now been underway for over 48 hours after gunfire erupted inside Club Oasis shortly after midnight. The one victim who lost her life in the incident was identified on Monday as Taleese Chandler, 20, of Columbus. The other 12 injured are expected to make a full recovery. While just one gun was recovered at the scene, officers believe three people were behind the shooting.

Owners of Club Oasis have since announced plans to close its doors after years of complaints about the club.

If you have any relevant information, contact the Clay County Sheriff’s Office at (662)494-2896.
