LOS ANGELES, Calif.—The Los Angeles City Council approved a $75,000 reward today for information leading to the conviction of whoever fired the shot that killed a 22-month-old boy in the arms of his uncle, who was critically wounded.
Joshua Montes and uncle Josefat Canchola were on a porch facing a backyard in the 1200 block of East 55th Street about 8:30 p.m. Monday when they were shot, police Capt. Mark Olvera said. Both suffered head wounds.
The shots were fired from the east side of Hoover Street, about 40 yards away, police said.
