A $5,000 reward is being offered for information regarding a suspect accused of tailing an off-duty Chicago police officer and then repeatedly shooting in his direction.

The officer, a three-year veteran with the Chicago Police Department, was followed after he left the Sixth District station in his personal vehicle Tuesday night, CBS Chicago reported.

He had traveled only about a half mile when a male stepped out of a gray Dodge Caravan and opened fire at 9:57 p.m. Witnesses recalled hearing at least 12 rapid gun shots before the chaos came to an end.

The attack left the victim’s vehicle, a Grand Cherokee, riddled with bullet holes, but the officer was not injured in the attack. He managed to drive the truck about another half-mile until if broke down from a flat tire.

The National Police Association, a nonprofit established to help law enforcement supporters connect with and assist their local departments, announced Friday it would offer a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the suspect.
