LONG BEACH — A $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture and conviction of those responsible for the slaying of a 35-year-old Long Beach man was extended Tuesday by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
The reward is offered in connection with the slaying of Pablo Ortiz, who was riding his bike at about 7:30 p.m. in the 2100 block of East 14th Street on June 21 when he was gunned down by an unknown suspect.
Ortiz was rushed to a local hospital, where he died about an hour later, police said.
There have been no arrests so far, and Long Beach Police Department Homicide detectives are working with few clues, according to a Knabe's office.
The supervisor, who represents the Long Beach region, proposed the extension of the reward at Tuesday's board session in the hope that it might prompt reluctant witnesses to come forward, Knabe's staff said.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Homicide Detectives Peter Lackovic, 562-570-7365, or Greg Krabbe, 562-570-5534. Tips can also be left with the Homicide's Detail's main line, 562-570-7244.
