The reward for information on who gunned down a grandmother has now been increased to $25,000.

Kim Flournoy was shot during an apparent robbery as she was entering TNT Bingo in Jacksonville on December 30th.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service added $2,500 to the reward amount on Thursday. Flournoy was the widow of a retired Marine.

Jacksonville police feel certain that there may be someone out there with information that will break the case.

Last month police released surveillance video of the gunman. The shooter left in a white or silver Dodge or Chrysler 4-door sedan, possibly a late model Dodge Avenger with several people inside.

In the 45 second video clip, the gunman is seen getting out of the white or silver car, behind a row of parked vehicles. The hooded man comes forward with a handgun in his right hand and confronts Flournoy, who is not seen on camera.

Anyone with information on the murder should call Crimestoppers at 910-938-3273.


Previous Story

More than a month after a Jacksonville grandmother was gunned down outside a bingo business, police have released surveillance video of her killer.

Kim Flournoy was murdered outside of TNT Bingo on Henderson Drive around 7:40 p.m. on December 30th. Monday, police released surveillance video of the gunman.

“We are at a point in the investigation where we feel that the release of the video could provide the public with information about the identity of the suspect in this case.” Lieutenant Jason Bettis said. “Over the last several weeks, we have been working to enhance the quality of the video footage to increase the potential of identifying the suspect.”

Police believe the woman was the target of an armed robbery. The shooter left in a white or silver Dodge or Chrysler 4-door sedan, possibly a late model Dodge Avenger with several people inside.

In the 45 second video clip, the gunman is seen getting out of the white or silver car, behind a row of parked vehicles. The hooded man comes forward with a handgun in his right hand and confronts Flournoy, who is not seen on camera.

At one point the gunman apparently walks toward the victim and is not on camera. When he leaves, it appears that the gunman has something in his left hand. He ran back to the car and got in the front passenger seat.

The gunman is a black male, wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt, jeans and black gloves. He was wearing white athletic-type shoes with a black stripe design.

A $22,500 reward is being offered in the case. Crimestoppers' number is 910-938-3273.
