$50K Reward Offered In Fatal Car-To-Car Shooting Of Man, 22

LOS ANGELES ( — The family of a 22-year-old man killed in a car-to-car shooting is asking for the public's help and the LAPD is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the gunmen.

Kendrick Blackmon, a full-time security guard, was fatally shot on April 21 in the 10000 of South San Pedro Street, said LAPD Capt. Tom McMullen.

Three men inside a black compact SUV drove up alongside Blackmon's car and shot him in the cheek. He later died from his injuries.

"Blackmon had no criminal history or gang affiliations, and the motive has remained unknown," authorities said.

The victim's family asked for the public's helping in finding those responsible for his death.

"I'd like to know so I can have peace. I'd like to know before I leave this earth who did this," said the victim's grandmother, Alberta Blackmon. "My grandson was shot and killed for no reason."

Anyone with information about his murder should contact the Los Angeles Police Department at (213) 485-4341.
