Police are searching for a murder suspect accused of gunning down a Tennessee man outside a LaGrange motel Wednesday.

Authorities are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of 27-year-old Tony Reynoso, who is suspected of shooting and killing Jeffery Flansburg following an argument outside the Motel 6, LaGrange police said.

Officers were dispatched to the motel after receiving calls about shots fired and arrived to find Flansburg lying on the sidewalk in front of Room 317, police said. The 31-year-old was rushed to the hospital, where he died.

“Police were able to determine that there were at least two individuals involved in an altercation with the victim just prior to the shooting,” authorities said in a news release.

The suspects were seen leaving the area in a red Chevrolet Cruze registered in Columbus. Authorities in Columbus were able to locate the vehicle and link it to Reynoso before securing warrants for his arrest, police said.

Anyone who knows his whereabouts or has information on the fatal shooting is asked to call LaGrange police at 706-883-2603, Crimestoppers at 706-812-1000, or 911.
