The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors renewed a $10,000 reward Tuesday for information on whoever gunned down a 23-year-old man while he was playing basketball in a Norwalk park nearly two years ago.

Supervisor Janice Hahn recommended extending the reward — which was set to expire June 26 — in the hopes that it will encourage witnesses to come forward.

Edwin Morales was shooting hoops at Gerdes Park at 14700 Gridley Road about 9:30 p.m. on July 11, 2015, when he was shot in the neck. He died at the scene.

Investigators said two gang members were seen randomly shooting at other men in the park before running off to a waiting car. Another victim was wounded, but survived.

Morales, who lived in Bellflower, had no gang affiliation, according to detectives.

Hahn urged anyone with information to call sheriff’s Detectives Wayne Holston or Karen Shonka, (323) 890-5500.
