Police offer reward for info in Pitt State killing

Pittsburg police are offering a reward for help locating two more suspects in the killing of a Pittsburg State University student.

KOAM-TV reports that $1,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the two 19-year-old suspects from Pittsburg. Two other men, ages 21 and 24, were arrested Friday on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Taylor C. Thomas and several other felonies.

Officers responding to a disturbance call at an off-campus home where Thomas lived found him wounded around 2 a.m. Thursday. The junior in mechanical engineering was pronounced dead at Via Christi Hospital.

An obituary posted on the Bath-Naylor Funeral Home website said he died after a burglary. An autopsy listed the cause of death as a single gunshot wound.
