The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Wednesday renewed a $10,000 reward in the fatal shooting of a young father on his bike in Harbor City in 2017.
Supervisor Janice Hahn recommended a reward for information on whoever gunned down 20-year-old Anthony Iniquez, the father of two toddler sons, around 12:45 a.m. June 17, 2017. The reward, set to expire March 15, will now be available for at least 90 days.
Iniquez was riding his bike home from a friend’s house near 252nd Street and Normandie Avenue when someone opened fire and shot him in the head. He died three days later.
Investigators are not certain whether the suspect was in a car or on foot. Police told the Los Angeles Times Iniquez was not a gang member, but the area where he was riding is home to several gangs, and he may have been a random victim.
“It makes me really angry that somebody thought they could take him away from his family,” Julie Duncan, Iniguez’s grandmother, told The Times. “He just wanted to do everything for them.”
Hahn asked anyone with additional information to call Los Angeles Police Detective Scott Coffee, 310-726-7887.
