FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The reward for information that leads to an arrest in a 2017 fatal shooting in Ferguson has increased.

The reward in this case has been increased to $50,000. The reward is only valid for this month, expiring March 31. 

"At this point we have no information, no leads, if you see something say something," said Robyn Drake. 

Drake was working at a construction supply business and just received joint custody of his son.

"He loved to travel, make people smile, good individual all the way around," said Drake. 

The shooting happened just after 10 p.m. on July 28 in the parking lot of 22 Arbor Village, where police responded to a call about several masked suspects lurking in the area. When police arrived at the scene, they discovered two semi-conscious victims suffering from gunshot wounds. 

Both victims were taken to a local hospital, where one victim, Donnell Drake, Jr., later died. The other victim was listed in critical condition. 

Witnesses told police they heard multiple gunshots during the incident. At this time, the suspects are described as four or five people wearing masks and gloves. 

CrimeStoppers originally offered a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest in the case. March 1, they announced an anonymous donor would add an additional reward of up to $45,000 for information that leads to an arrest in the case. The increased reward, which totals up to $50,000, will only be offered until March 31, 2018.

Anyone with any information on the shooting is asked to call the Ferguson Police Department at 314-522-3100 or CrimeStoppers at 314-725-8477(TIPS).
