The City Council of Los Angeles has voted to offer a reward of $50,000 for information leading to the identity, arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible for the murder of 21-year-old Michael Phillip McGuire.
Last June 13, McGuire had attended a prom night party with a friend. He was standing on the sidewalk and preparing to leave the house in the 2400 block of Louella Avenue, near Venice Blvd., when a dark-colored SUV drove by. The time was approximately 2am. An occupant of the vehicle fired multiple gunshots at McGuire striking him and grazing another victim. Paramedics were called and McGuire was taken to a hospital where he died of his injuries.
The Los Angeles Police Department is reequesting any information about the murder.
A statement from the police says the information will be kept “strictly confidential.”
