The reward for information leading to an arrest of the perpetrators who fired a barrage of bullets at the home of two Camden County Police officers last week increased to $100,000 Friday afternoon, authorities said.
The reward had reached over $50,000 late last week as investigators continued their search for the people who fired 10 shots at the home of the married cops who were on the second floor of their Clinton Street home with their newborn baby.
Police on Tuesday identified a man who barricaded himself in someone else’s Scottsdale home as 41-year-old James B. Stark III of Mesa.
Stark on Sept. 21 was observed speeding in a school zone along Miller Road when a Scottsdale Police Department officer stopped him, according to a probable cause statement police submitted to the Maricopa County Superior Court.
He “stopped long enough” for the officer to walk toward the car but then sped away before crashing less than a mile away near McKellips and Scottsdale roads, court documents said.

A Garfield police officer’s home was gutted in a fire Saturday night that took the lives of her cats and torched her car, according to fellow police officers.
The home on Van Winkle Avenue in Garfield went up in flames around 8 p.m. and spread to a neighboring home, video on Twitter shows. No one was injured in the fire.
Rebecca Schmidt, a four-year veteran of the department who shares the house with her parents, also lost her police uniforms, service weapons and all of her personal belongings in the fire, Garfield local PBA #46 said.
Schmidt began working as a volunteer EMT as a high school student while growing up in Garfield and went on to become a police officer, Sgt. Jeff Stewart wrote in an Instagram post. She continues to volunteer her time as with the Garfield police’s community affairs department, according to Stewart.

At least one gunman attacked the home of two Camden County, New Jersey police officers and their 10-day old infant earlier this week in what the police chief has since labeled a “targeted attack,” which came days after two Los Angeles deputy sheriffs were ambushed by gunfire in their vehicles.
The officers and their baby were not injured in the Tuesday attack, Camden Police Chief Joseph Wysocki said at a Thursday press conference.
Investigators believe two suspects, driven by a third, pulled up outside the officers’ Camden County home before midnight on Tuesday and sprayed bullets, with at least two piercing the front door.
“I do know that this was a targeted attack against this residence and the officers inside,” said Wysocki, who described the couple as “two really good officers” who were “constantly interacting with members

A Flagstaff police officer was found dead in his home Saturday from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to officials.
Officers from Flagstaff Police Department were performing a welfare check on Ofc. Jarrett Shughart’s home when they found him, according to a news release from department spokesperson Sgt. Charles Hernandez. He was 31 years old.
No other people were in the home at the time, Hernandez said. Shughart’s death was being investigated by the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office, he said.
Shughart was just shy of his six-year anniversary with the department on Oct. 13, according to Hernandez. He served as a field training officer and was most recently assigned “in a light-duty capacity” because of a work-related injury, Hernandez said.
