The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a $10,000 reward Tuesday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever opened fire on a couple in Hacienda Heights in May, killing a 26-year-old man.
Supervisor Janice Hahn recommended the reward in the shooting death of Alfonso Guzman Jr.
Deputies from the Industry Sheriff’s Station responded about 1 a.m. May 20 to the 3300 block of Turnbull Canyon Road where they found Guzman and a woman inside a vehicle parked on the side of the road, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Robert Westphal told Fox 11 around the time of the shooting.
Guzman was declared dead at the scene and the woman was taken to a hospital, where she was initially listed in critical condition, Westphal said.
Hahn said the woman was seriously injured, but survived the attack.
A preliminary investigation determined the victims had been parked at the location for some time and may have been ingesting nitrous oxide when a second vehicle pulled up and one person exited that vehicle and fired shots into the victims’ car, then fled the scene, according to Westphal.
The suspect vehicle was described as a gray sedan, last seen going southbound on Turnbull Canyon Road.
Anyone with additional information was urged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500 or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
