The U.S. Marshall Service is offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to the arrests of two men connected to the shooting of an elderly Platte County man during an armed robbery. 

Officials say James Osler and Requon Dillard may be hiding out somewhere in the Kansas City metro area. According to a release from the U.S. Marshals service, law enforcement also believe the pair are receiving assistance from family and friends in the area.

The release says Osler and Dillard are long-time friends and may be hiding out together.

Osler, who also goes by "Dimps," is 6 feet tall, weighs approximately 140 pounds and has tattoos on his hands. He is pictured on the left in the image above with long hair but officials say it's possible that he changed his hair.

Dillard, who also goes by "Que," is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs approximately 130 pounds. Dillard is shown on the right in the image at the top of this story.

The release says both Osler and Dillard should be considered armed and dangerous. The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a $1,000 reward each for information that leads to an arrest.

Anyone with information concerning either one of these men is encouraged to contact Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryan Guthrie at (816) 560-0817 or make an anonymous tip to the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-8477, although anonymous tips aren't eligible for the reward.
