LOS ANGELES, Calif.--Authorities announced a $50,000 reward for help in solving the killing of a man who was gunned down two years ago today in the southeast Los Angeles area.
Steven Kelly, 42, was fatally shot about 9 p.m. July 10, 2010, near East 109th Place and Willowbrook Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.
The reward was announced at a news conference this morning near the crime scene.

Investigators were unsure of a motive for the crime.
The reward was offered by the City Council for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the suspect or suspects in the killing.
