AUSTIN -- The Texas Department of Public Safety has raised the reward for a fugitive.

Tips leading to the arrest of Anthony Gonzales, 40, will now be rewarded with $20,000 if made during January.

DPS says Gonzales is a Texas Mexican Mafia gang member. He has a violent criminal history and is wanted for murder. He is also wanted for organized crime and aggravated assault.

In 2008 he and nine other gang members were allegedly involved in a Corpus Christi shooting. One adult died and two children were injured.

All nine of the suspects have been arrested except Gonzales.

He is about 5'6" and weighs around 170 pounds. DPS says he goes by the name "Ghost" and has worked in upholstery in the past.

His tattoos include "Lil Laura" on his left finger, "Mexicano" and a female figure on his stomach, and more tattoos across his neck and upper chest. He is considered armed and dangerous.
