GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Police announced late Friday a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot and killed a retired Gwinnett County deputy during an armed robbery Wednesday night.
Felix Cosme, 63, of Dacula, was gunned down while working at O'Reilly Auto Parts at 2786 Hamilton Mill Road. Police said Cosme had come from the back of the store armed with a gun attempting to end the robbery but ended up being shot by the suspect.

The FBI put up the $15,000 reward, which is separate from the standard $2,000 reward being offered by Atlanta Crime Stoppers.
