LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Los Angeles City Council is offering a $75,000 reward for information in the double murder of a husband and wife who were gunned down as they drove in South Los Angeles.

Jerriel Wilborn, 49, and his wife, 51-year-old Sulema, were each shot several times on Aug. 4 at Slauson Avenue and Figueroa Street.

The couple of 10 years was driving when shots were fired at them. The car, driven by the wife, crashed into a telephone pole. They died later at a hospital.

Police say they have no eye witnesses and few leads. Detectives believe the couple was targeted, but don’t know why.

Anyone with information on the case can call LAPD Newton Station homicide detectives at (323) 846-6556, (323) 846-5363 or (877) LAPD-24-7.
