Authorities Thursday released security video of a vehicle chase that ended in a shooting in 2016 that took the life of a 16-year-old girl in Lynwood, and reminded Southlanders that a $30,000 reward was in effect for information that helps solve the crime.
Danah Rojo-Rivas was fatally wounded on Nov. 23, 2016 at about 9:30 p.m. at Euclid Avenue and Long Beach Boulevard, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported.
The teen was sitting in the back seat of a vehicle driven by her mother, and they were heading home from church when another vehicle began chasing them, a sheriff’s statement said.
“During the car-to-car chase, gunshots were fired from … a silver or gray four-door vehicle, possibly a Ford Taurus,” the statement said. “The suspect vehicle was last seen westbound on Euclid Avenue.”
The combined reward includes $20,000 from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and $10,000 from two private citizens, the sheriff’s department reported.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
