Authorities appealed for public help to solve the killing of a man who was fatally shot by a suspect on a bicycle in South Los Angeles four days before Thanksgiving.

The cyclist approached 32-year-old Moses Nelson on Nov. 23 about 9 a.m. as he was walking down East 57th Street near Naomi Avenue and shot him several times. He died at the scene.

A $50,000 reward is being offered by the Los Angeles City Council for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.

“Everybody’s living in fear, because it’s a dangerous society, and a dangerous neighborhood … a neighborhood that’s infested with crime,” the victim’s father, Eligh Nelson, said at a news conference this morning at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Newton Area Station.

Authorities released security images of the bicyclist and asked anyone with information to contact homicide detectives at the LAPD’s Newton Station at (323) 846-6556.
