$50K Reward To Be Offered In Church Killing
LOS ANGELES (AP/CBS) — Los Angeles officials plan to offer a $50,000 reward to help find a killer who gunned down a man following a graffiti confrontation at a storefront church.
During Sunday night services, 25 year-old Andres Ordonez went outside to confront a woman scrawling graffiti on a wall near the church, according to the LAPD. Another church member also came out and they tried to get the female suspect to stop.
Police said after some sort of altercation, a male suspect exited a parked car nearby and shot both church members.
Ordonez died at the scene. He left behind a pregnant wife and a young son.
The second victim is recovering from his injuries.
The City Council planned Tuesday to authorize a $50,000 reward for information leading to the killer’s arrest.
