JESSUP, Md. (AP/WBOC)- A reward for a man who escaped from the grounds of a Maryland psychiatric hospital has been doubled to $10,000.
    
The U.S. Marshals Service, Howard County Police and Maryland State Police have been looking for 28-year-old David M. Watson II since Friday.
    
Watson, who is of Laurel, Delaware, also has ties to the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
    
Howard County Police said in a news release Monday that officers are visiting businesses near the Clifton T. Perkins Hospital Center in Jessup. They're asking businesses to check their properties, trucks, vans, buildings and video footage for possible break-ins or sightings.
    
Watson is white, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. He has tattoos on his face and body.
    
He was serving a sentence of more than 100 years in Delaware for reckless endangerment, firearms and related charges for shooting an officer's home in 2013. He has also been charged with attempted murder and other offenses on Maryland's Eastern Shore related to shootings of police officers' homes.
