In a news conference Friday morning, the Kaufman Police Department said investigators are exploring all avenues in their search for the killer(s) of Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse and that a reward for information is now up to $64,500.
Hasse was gunned down Thursday morning in what appears to be a targeted attack, police said. The prosecutor was shot multiple times while walking from the parking lot toward the county courthouse at about 8 a.m., officials said. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died.
When asked if Hasse appeared to have been targeted by his attacker, Kaufman County Sheriff David Byrnes said: "I would say from all appearances it is, but we have no concrete information on that. We're pursuing every avenue right now."
Chris Aulbaugh, the Kaufman chief of police, said no official arrests have been made in connection with the shooting. Police are following up on several leads, including multiple witness reports from various angles around the crime scene, he said.
