Published on Wednesday, November 23, 2022 | 5:11 pm

New details emerged Wednesday regarding the case of Iran Moreno, the 13-year-old who was killed by a stray bullet while playing video games in his home on North Raymond Avenue in November last year. 

According to information just made public by the Pasadena Police Dept.’s Robbery / Homicide Unit, on Nov. 20, 2021, the day Moreno was killed, a 2017-2020, 4-door gray “Ford Fusion” stopped in a parking lot across from Moreno’s residence. 

The front passenger, armed with a gun, exited the vehicle and fired two gunshots in an easterly direction. Police believe one of the fired bullets hit Moreno. 

According to police, the suspect was a male wearing a dual-colored hoodie or long-sleeved shirt. His race is unknown. 

In a statement, the Dept. said its detectives have been “tenaciously” conducting the follow-up investigation into the killing but also said investigative leads have not led them to the suspect. 

“We are again asking for the public’s help to bring those responsible to justice on behalf of young Iran Moreno,” police said.

The Dept. reminded the public there is currently an $85,000  reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect or suspects responsible for Moreno’s murder.
