A $30,000 reward was being offered by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and two private parties for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever shot and killed a 16-year-old girl in Lynwood in 2016, authorities said Friday.
Dana Rojo-Rivas was shot and killed at the corner of Euclid Avenue and Long Beach Boulevard about 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 23, 2016, according to the sheriff’s department.
Rojo-Rivas was sitting in the back seat of her mother’s car as the pair drove home from church, the sheriff’s department said. Rojo-Rivas and her mother inadvertently became caught up in a car- to-car chase. During that chase gunshots were fired from one of the cars, described as a silver or gray, four-door vehicle that was possibly a Ford Taurus.
Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas authored the motion to offer a $20,000 reward by the board. Another $10,000 was added to the reward total by two private citizens, the sheriff’s department said.
Anyone with information on this homicide was asked to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
