The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a motion introduced by Supervisor Don Knabe to establish a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) involved in the shooting of Felix Avelar-Duran.
On Monday, March 24, 2014, Avelar-Duran, 53, was working as a clerk at a local business in the 1100 block of Seventh Street in the City of Long Beach when an armed gunman entered the business and during the course of a robbery, shot the victim. The victim remains in critical condition. No one has been arrested in this case.
Detectives have been unable to identify a suspect and few witnesses have come forward so far. Detectives feel it would be beneficial to offer a reward, which may prompt reluctant witnesses to come forward and provide information to identify the individual(s) responsible for this crime. They can remain anonymous.
