INGLEWOOD, Calif.--A $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the gunman who shot and killed Cali Swag District dancer Monte Ray Talbert is being offered by the Inglewood Police Department, lieutenant said.

Relatives of Talbert, also known as "M-Bone," and Inglewood police officers will distribute fliers Friday in an effort to solicit information about the May 21 shooting, Lt. James D. Madia said.

The 22-year-old Talbert and a companion were in a stopped car in the general vicinity of a liquor store in the 400 block of North La Brea Avenue when an unknown vehicle pulled up. Someone inside reached out of the car window and fired several shots, striking Talbert once in the head and neck, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Cali Swag District's hit "Teach Me How to Dougie" set off a national dance craze and sold about 2 million downloads.

Inglewood homicide detectives asked anyone with any information regarding the fatal shooting to call them at (310) 412-5246.
