The Los Angeles City Council unanimously approved a $50,000 reward Wednesday to help find the person responsible for the murder of 14-year-old Elawnza Peebles. Councilman Curren D. Price Jr. asked colleagues to approve the reward for anyone providing information leading to the identification, apprehension and conviction of the person responsible for Peebles’ murder. Los Angeles Police Department detectives have been working diligently on this case and are hoping that the reward will help them close this case, and bring peace to the family of the victim. Peebles was tragically shot down on November 9, near 46th Street and Kansas Avenue, as he walked home from a relative’s house.
“Murder is always tragic, but it is especially painful to see a young man’s life cut so short, as he innocently tried to make his way home,” said Councilman Price.
“Police officers have been working tirelessly to find leads on this case, I hope that this reward will help them find the person responsible for this violent act and bring them to justice.”
The reward will remain in effect for six months from the date that the reward is advertised by the City Clerk. If you have information on this case, please contact Detectives Eric Crosson or Miguel Gutierrez with the LAPD’s Criminal Gang & Homicide Unit, at (213)-485-1383.
