Reward money raised for information about who killed a popular Grant Park bartender has surpassed $20,000.
Atlanta police say robbers shot 27-year-old John Henderson at Standard Food and Spirits on Jan. 7.
Organizer Rich Chey says a Jan. 28 fundraiser involving 85 local restaurants raised roughly $45,000. About $23,000 of that will go to the reward for information in Henderson's death. The rest will go into the general fund of the Atlanta Police Foundation, a nonprofit which supports the city police department.
Previously, the largest reward pot in the Crime Stopper Atlanta tip line's two-year history was $27,500.
