City Council Approves $50,000 Reward

From our press release file:


LOS ANGELES- The City Council today voted unanimously to approve Councilman Bill Rosendahl’s motion to offer a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual responsible for Agustin Contreras's death.

Rosendahl, who represents the Venice area, submitted the motion two days after the shooting in reaction to the death of the teenager, who was killed Monday, June 5 at Venice High School.

"We need to do right by Agustin Contreras and his family," Rosendahl said. "We must find the person responsible for this heinous crime and bring them to justice."

Described as a good student unaffiliated with gangs, Contreras was killed while defending his younger brother from a reported gang robbery and assault. The suspect was identified as an African-American male wearing a gray sweatshirt, jeans and a red hat. The suspect is not believed to be a student at Venice High School.

Although it has been reported that a large crowd of people witnessed the shooting, no one has come forward with information regarding the shooting.

Rosendahl urged the public to aid in the identification of the suspect.

"My greatest hope is that this reward will help bring witnesses forward,” Rosendahl said. “We cannot afford for another innocent life to be taken, for another mother or father to suffer the loss of a child."
