ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) - Anderson police said Tuesday the reward being offered for information in the death of Randy Smith has increased.
Smith was killed in a drive-by shooting in front of an E. Whitner Street convenience store on March 30, 2016.

Anyone with information in the case is should call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC to be eligible for a cash reward.
Police said Smith’s family raised money to add to the Crime Stoppers reward, bringing the total of $4,000.
"We know that someone out there knows something," Chief Jim Stewart said during the news conference.
"For two years, those with information about this case have stayed silent while the Smith family agonized," added Stephen Combs with Anderson County Crime Stoppers.
Combs asked anyone with information to "do the right thing" and help "provide justice and closure for the family."
Smith's mother, Gloria, also spoke during the news conference. She said that she and Smith's four children miss him dearly and "just want justice" for him.
"He didn’t deserve to be shot down like he was. Just standing here talking with friends," Gloria Smith said. "Basically with his back turned on his phone not really having time to react when the person came through here shooting. So I’m just asking anyone with information to come forward."
