Compton City Council Adds $10,000 to LA County Sheriff’s Reward

Reward set for information leading to the conviction of any persons responsible

Compton, CA – At last night’s meeting, the City Council approved a $10,000 reward for information leading to the identification, apprehension and conviction of any person(s) responsible for the injury of two sheriff deputies on September 12. The incident on the evening of the 12th occurred near the Metro line within the City.

“I condemn violence of any kind,” said Mayor Aja Brown. “The shooting was an absolute tragedy, not only to the two victims involved, but to our entire community as a whole. The act of one person does not reflect our city of 100,000 residents, or the great strides we’ve taken collectively to improve safety in our community. We do not tolerate nor promote violence. We will continue to keep the deputies and their families in our prayers. The City will be working with the Sheriffs Department as they search to apprehend the individual responsible for this act of violence.”

The City’s reward will be added to the cumulative reward fund, which has now reached over $600,000. The reward started with $100,000 from LA County and was increased by donations made from LA County Metro, the League of United Latin American Citizens, and the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, among others.

Anyone with information on this case can call the sheriff tip line at (323) 890-5500.
