LOS ANGELES (CBS) The Los Angeles Kings have announced that are contributing $50,000 in reward money to help find the shooter of the 1-year-old baby that was killed Monday night in LA Watts.
Kings Governor and AEG President Tim J. Leiweke made the announcement as part of the launch of the 2,000 Acts of Hope charitable initiative in Los Angeles.
“During such an exciting time such as this we can’t lose sight of the importance and responsibility we all share in keeping our community safe,” said Leiweke. “Our players and staff feel a tremendous obligation to do everything we can to help find who committed this terrible act of irresponsibility and hopefully this can contribute to the effort to acquire the information necessary to find who did this and make sure everyone knows this is unacceptable in our city.”
City Councilman Joe Buscaino, who represents Watts, said he was also able to secure a $50,000 emergency reward to flush out the killer after the devastating loss. The total reward money is already up to $100,000, just within 24 hours of the killing.
Police are looking for the suspect, who has been described as a 15- to 17-year-old boy.
