Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a motion by Supervisor Kathryn Barger to extend the reward offered for information leading to the identification and arrest of the persons involved in the heinous murder of 13-year-old Iran Moreno.

Moreno was shot and killed while playing video games at his home on North Raymond Avenue last November.

According to police he was not the target of the shooting.

“Iran was playing video games in his bedroom when he was hit by a stray bullet that tragically ended his life,” said Supervisor Barger. “The grief and loss felt by his family, friends, teachers and community is unimaginable. I’m extending this $20,000 reward with the hope that those involved in this shooting will be identified and prosecuted. Justice for Iran and his family must be served.”
