LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles City Council is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of whoever was responsible for the fatal Christmas Day drive-by shooting of a young mother in South L.A.

Kashmier James, 25, was visiting friends in South Los Angeles and returned to her car Christmas night when a blue vehicle pulled up alongside her and someone fired shots. James’ 3-year-old daughter, who was not hit, was strapped in the back seat of her car.

Police said there was no clear motive for the killing and that there was no concrete evidence that it was gang-related.
