(Newser) – A McDonald's manager will get a $110,000 reward for tipping off police about a man accused of killing four people and terrorizing a Florida neighborhood for 51 days, the AP reports. Tampa police chief Brian Dugan said at a news conference Friday that Delonda Walker will receive "every penny" of the reward money. Her tip to police on Tuesday led to the arrest of 24-year-old Howell Emanuel Donaldson III.

Donaldson is charged with four counts of first-degree murder. His victims were apparently randomly shot during October and November. Donaldson worked at the McDonald's and left his loaded gun in the restaurant. In a statement, Walker said getting a reward never entered her mind. She said she simply "wanted to do the right thing."
