Maryland Crime Stoppers offered an $8,000 reward Friday night.
Reynolds, 48, was killed on Thursday after he was involved in a deadly clash with a rubber extractor worker at the intersection of Light and Conway Streets.
“Hot interaction” Between Reynolds and the rubber workers escalated after Reynolds decided to park and approached the group with a baton that he swung at “one or more” of them, according to Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison.
There were several incidents of squeegee window washers reported at the same intersection in the hours before Reynolds was killed.

Hogan told WJZ on Friday that the city had failed to address the problems associated with rubber workers, which had been prevalent for “years.”
“It certainly had a big impact on people being afraid to come to the city because they had been harassed for years,” Hogan said. “This is just the tip of the iceberg right downtown across from the Inner Harbor with someone getting shot.”
Mayor Brandon Scott has actively supported young people to earn money cleaning car windshields on street corners.
In 2021, he kicks off 90 day action plan aims to help the rubber workers by placing them in stable jobs.
More recently, the Mayor’s Office for African-American Men’s Engagement organized a job fair for young people in the city, some of whom are former rubber worker.
