Reporter: Patri Crawford is used to being on camera. But never like this. He started shooting as I was leaving the parking lot.

And correct something that people said, that he exchanged words with the shooter. The man said no words, there was no interaction whatsoever. Reporter: He saw the man long enough to help officers create that sketch. Detectives say they have released more than a hundred tips since releasing it. And the reward has doubled again. It's now $20,000 after Crawford's station chipped in another 10,000. Hopefully the description will help bring this person to justice for what he did and the crime he committed.
