WALDORF, Md. (WUSA) -- Six days later, Beth Wood still can't believed it happened. A 20-year resident of Kodiak Bear Court, a quiet cul-de-sac in Waldorf's Hampshire neighborhood, Wood said this has always been a safe community, which is why she remains stunned that her neighbors, Jerry and Teresa Bass, were shot early last Friday night while walking their dog on a bike path just a few blocks from their home.

Teresa was killed. Her husband, who was seriously injured, is still in the hospital. "You don't think anything like this is going to happen," Wood said.

According to Wood,  Teresa Bass, 40, was a nurse and the mother of four children, while her husband, who has four more kids from a previous marriage, is a Montgomery County firefighter. The Charles County Sheriff's Department says right now they have no motives in the case, but have released a sketch of a possible suspect, in hopes of solving an extremely disturbing crime. "The sooner we find out who it is, the more people will be at ease," Wood said.

A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case. People with information are asked to call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
