Officials joined family members of a man shot and killed outside a Westlake district church in an appeal to the public for information about the slaying.
Andres Ordonez, 25, of Los Angeles was killed, and a man in his 40s was wounded in the shooting outside the Principe de Paz church in the 3000 block of
West Beverly Boulevard around 6:20 p.m. Sunday. Another man was also targeted, but was not hit.
Ordonez and the wounded victim, who was in stable condition following the shooting, emerged from the storefront church to try to stop a female from spray-painting red graffiti on one of its walls when a gunman got out of a stopped vehicle and opened fire, said Sgt. Herb Chang of the Los Angeles Police Department's Rampart Station.
Both the female and the shooter then got into the vehicle and fled.
Police are looking for a total of three suspects believed to have gang affiliations.
The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the gunman.
