$10,000 reward offered in 2010 Inglewood shooting
LOS ANGELES, Calif.—The Board of Supervisors today offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to whoever fatally shot a 21-year-old Inglewood father in front of his home.
Ira Tyrone Koger was sitting in his car in front of his residence in the 800 block of West Beach Avenue at about 10:30 a.m. on Feb. 25, 2010, preparing to leave for work, when a car pulled up alongside. Someone inside asked what gang Koger was in and then shots were fired. Koger died at the scene.
Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas recommended the reward.
“[Ira] was a loving son, grandson, brother and father to his family, a wonderful friend and very engaged in his community,” Ridley-Thomas said. “Ira was not a gang member and the shock and senseless murder ... has left his family devastated.”
Police described the suspects as three male Hispanics with shaved heads, wearing white T-shirts.
They were driving a stolen four-door white Toyota Camry, which was later recovered near Centinela Park.
Anyone with information was asked to call Inglewood police homicide Detective Loyd Waters at (310) 412-5246 or the anonymous hotline at (888) 41-CRIME (2-7463).
