TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The homeowners who provided police with the eerie surveillance video of the hooded man accused in a string of fatal shootings in a Florida neighborhood want a piece of the $110,000 reward.

Police in Tampa released the video of the suspect slowly walking down a Seminole Heights street just before an Oct. 9 shooting and running in the opposite direction moments later.

The cameras are attached to Patrick and Kelly Holladay's bungalow. They told the Tampa Bay Times it would have been nice to have shared in the reward. That money was given to a McDonald's manager who helped break the case when Howell Donaldson III handed her a paper bag with a gun inside on Nov. 28.

The Holladays say the video put them in danger and immensely helped police.
