Big photo and more below.
Update: Yesterday, we told you about the shooting of an employee during what appeared to be a robbery at a Pleasures adult store in Aurora; see our previous coverage below.

Now, representatives of the Aurora Police Department have released a surveillance photo of the man who pulled the trigger.

See a larger version of the image below, and get the latest about an increased reward being dangled in the case.

As we've reported, the incident took place just after 2 p.m. Sunday at the Pleasures branch located on Havana. The sole employee on the job at the time was shot in the chest and the gunman managed to get away -- for now. Fortunately, the clerk is expected to survive.

In the wake of the attack, reports circulated about surveillance video, with the suggestion that cameras had caught the shooter before he pulled a blue bandanna over the lower half of his face. But thus far, the APD hasn't released any footage -- investigators need to finish interviews and other followup before it will be made public, department spokesman Officer Frank Fania notes -- and the sole image shared to date shows the aforementioned bandanna very much in place.

Here's the pic:

Even though the image is clear, the bandanna and hoodie worn by the man will make identification a challenge. However, the APD is offering an additional incentive to look close. The previous reward for information on the perpetrator was the standard $2,000 offered through Crime Stoppers. Now, that number has been boosted to $2,500, bringing the total to $4,500.

Who to call if you recognize the man with his finger on the trigger? Detective Matt Ingui at 303-739-6067 or Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).

Here's the initial 9News report on the shooting.

Yeah, I recognize him. He looks like the majority of the other worthless thugs out there preying on society.

Watch APD begin opening fire on EVERY black man seen wearing a dark hoodie .

They can easily 'handle' it as they have done w/ Sullivan and are doing w/ Holmes .

Aurora and Arapahoe county do what ever, when ever the hell they please . This made apparent w/ each major case passing through the county since the late 1980's . It sickens me to think how many innocent men have been sentenced to prison via OUTRAGEOUS D.A. threats,  and the unnecessary compiling of charges FORCING a plea . 'Victory' .....

Wearing a hoodie when everyone else is in shorts, tank tops, or t-shirts, MAY be a little peculiar ....

APD . Pick a black guy . Most any black guy close to the description will do ,  & 'create' a circumstantial life sentence in front of a prominent white, middle class jury ..... 

What's taking so long ???

"According to the owner, this Pleasures store is robbed about eight times a year" And they worry about the crime associated with MMJ Dispensaries!
