A two-day baseball tournament, on behalf of Jason Ellis, raised $27,000.

Ellis is the Bardstown Police Officer shot to death in late May.

Police say someone shot him in an ambush as he moved tree branches from a road.

The money raised during the tournament will go to the Ellis family.

It is separate from the reward fund for information leading to an arrest in the murder.

That fund now sits at $135,000.
