LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors offered a $10,000 reward Wednesday for information to help solve the drive-by shooting death of a man in the Athens area.

Lester Virgil, 45, was fatally shot on Aug. 5, 2016, as he was coaching his 12-year-old son’s basketball team in the 1600 block of West 110th Street.

According to the sheriff’s department, a car stopped in front of the house and a passenger fired several rounds. The boys escaped danger, but Lester was struck by gunfire.
