The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved Supervisor Kathryn Barger’s motion extending a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the people responsible for a San Dimas murder that took place during Christmas week in 2018.
Michael Moreno, 35, was shot while talking with two friends in a San Dimas neighborhood at approximately 6:30 p.m. on December 23, 2018. Mr. Moreno was not a gang member and had no gang affiliations. Homicide investigators from the Sheriff’s Department do not believe he was the intended target.
“I stand with Moreno’s family members who deserve answers, closure, and justice,” said Supervisor Kathryn Barger. “Michael was in the prime of his life. At 35, he had a bright future ahead of him, but it was violently cut short by murderers who haven’t faced consequences for their actions. I remain hopeful that extending this $10,000 reward will entice someone to step forward. Help us solve this tragedy and bring peace to a grieving family.”
Mr. Moreno’s family members remain in contact with detectives and have been actively helping in any way possible to solve the murder.
