SIKESTON, Mo. -- A reward is offered for a Sikeston man wanted in connection with a shooting Halloween night.

Police are seeking information about the whereabouts of Dominique Duval Tipler, 24. Tipler is charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action in the shooting of a 24-year-old Sikeston man at a home on Prosperity Street.

According to Lt. Jim McMillen of the Department of Public Safety, Tipler allegedly tried to rob the victim, demanding his money at gunpoint.
