(CBS) Nearly $65,000 is being offered for information in the murder of Texas prosecutor Mark Hasse, who was fatally shot outside his office Thursday morning, CBS DFW reports.

Authorities said no arrests have been made in the 57-year-old Hasse's slaying near the Kaufman County Courthouse. The Dallas County District Attorney's Office pledged $30,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the shooting suspects, bolstering other reward money of roughly $35,000, according to CBS DFW.

District Attorney Craig Watkins told the station that the money came from assets seized in criminal cases.

"He is in a fraternity of prosecutors, so from Dallas County's perspective, we're going to do everything we can to bring those individuals to justice," Watkins said.

Authorities continue to search for suspects, thoroughly reviewing Hasse's cases and looking for clues that might shed light on his murder.
