DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has offered a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of whoever shot up a pawn shop in Danville and killed three people.

Danville Police Chief Tony Gray told The Advocate-Messenger that witnesses described the shooter as "heavy-set" and having a "pot belly." Gray says the man fled through the garage of the business after Friday morning's shooting, then went down an alleyway of a nearby establishment.

Boyle County Coroner Dr. Don Hamner says the bodies of 35-year-old Mike Hockensmith, his wife, 38-year-old Angela Hockensmith and a customer, 60-year-old Daniel P. Smith, were sent to Frankfort for autopsies.

The Hockensmiths ran ABC Gold, Games and More.
