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.

    Maybe this is some sort of deal went bad? Check there professional associates, maybe someone got he raw end of a business deal. Check their emails & bank accounts for suspicious activities or threats.

    What?! No one is blaming the alleged illegal, immigrant farm worker for this??? Not a day goes by without that! Sheesh, guess I didn’t get the memo that hell froze over….

    Tragic…prayers that they find whoever is responsible for these homicides and that they do it quickly.

      Why do you automatically want to blame an immigrant farm worker? Racist bigot.
