Authorities today sought public help to solve the drive-by killing four years ago of a young man in the south Los Angeles Area.
Kejon Atkins, 22, was shot in the head about 11:30 a.m. on July 23, 2015, as he stood on a sidewalk in the 1800 block of East 126th Street, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported. He died four days later at a hospital.
Detectives released security images of two vehicles believed connected with the crime: a gold, older model 4-door sedan and a maroon and gray Pontiac Vibe van. No descriptions were available of the suspects. A motive for the crime was not known.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has approved a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conviction of the suspect or suspects responsible for the killing.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500, or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
