SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A Texas sheriff says the killer of one of his deputies apparently was looking for a law enforcement officer to kill.

Bexar (BAYR) County Sheriff Amadeo Ortiz says it appears someone simply killed a police officer on "the spur of the moment."

He also said every theory was being considered in the killing of 48-year-old sheriff's Sgt. Kenneth Vann at a San Antonio intersection early Saturday. A sheriff's department statement Tuesday says a royal blue 2009 model or later crew-cab Fort F-150 is sought in the killing.

Meanwhile, the reward fund has swelled to $127,000 for information leading to those responsible for Vann's death. Ortiz says the fund got a boost from donations of $50,000 by the FBI and $25,000 by a San Antonio lawyer.
