Dallas police say no arrests had been made in the early Monday shooting of 58-year-old Tony Mosby. Federal investigators announced a $50,000 reward on Tuesday for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
Investigators say Mosby was driving the rig, known as a box truck, when he was shot. He was found dead in the truck as officers responded to a reported shooting.
