The Board of Supervisors Tuesday renewed a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever shot a 26-year-old Long Beach man in 2012 and left him lying in a street.

Supervisor Don Knabe recommended extending the reward, which was set to expire Friday.

“Detectives have canvassed the area in an attempt to find additional witnesses to the incident … no additional witnesses have come forward,” Knabe said, adding he hoped the reward would prompt a call.

Lashown Fils was shot in the chest and left lying near 14th Street and Cedar Avenue at about 4 a.m. Jan. 11, 2012. He was pronounced dead at a hospital a few hours later.

Investigators said Fils was not a gang member and the motive for the shooting was unknown.

Anyone with information on who shot Fils was asked to call Long Beach homicide Detectives Terri Hubert or Mark Bigel at (562) 570-7244. Anonymous tips can be provided by calling Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).
