CINCINNATI (AP) -- Police are offering a $5,000 reward for information that could help them find a man they say fled from a Cincinnati police-involved shooting last week that left one man dead and another wounded.

Cincinnati police have said Officer Orlando Smith fatally shot 19-year-old Dontez O'Neal last Wednesday after they say O'Neal fired at Smith from a vehicle. Police say officers were following the vehicle after an alleged undercover drug buy. Another man police say was in the vehicle was wounded in the arm in the gunfire. He has pleaded not guilty to four drug trafficking counts.

Police are seeking a third unidentified man they say fled in the vehicle.

The shooting investigation is continuing.
