Police are raising the reward for information leading to an arrest after a Phoenix woman was shot and killed in September.

On Tuesday, Phoenix police held a press conference at their headquarters announcing that they are raising the reward to $21,000 for answers about 49-year-old Dinya Farmer's death.

On Sept. 7, Farmer was gunned down on State Route 51 near McDowell and Thomas roads. 

Moments before the shooting, the victim told 911 that she was being followed by three men in a white work-style truck with a ladder rack. While on the phone with emergency dispatchers, Farmer was shot in the head and crashed into a concrete median. 

Farmer died shortly after at the hospital. 

Authorities believe her murder could be a result of road rage because it's believed the truck had been following her from Seventh Avenue and Broadway Road — eight miles from where she was shot.

Now, the Phoenix Police Department is reaching out to the public for answers in connection to her death. 

Officials are continuing their search for the three Hispanic men. 

Anyone with information about the case is urged to either call Silent Witness or leave an anonymous tip on the Silent Witness website.
