Help find the suspect in the Woodland Hills shooting

This morning Councilmember Dennis Zine and I introduced a motion to offer a $75,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator who shot a LAUSD School Police Officer on Wednesday. In addition to the city's reward, other organizations have stepped up to offer monetary rewards so that there is now a total of $100,000 in financial incentives to help LAPD find the perpetrator.

Yesterday, the LAPD released a composite sketch of the suspect (at right), who is described as a male Caucasian, in his mid-to-late 40s with long grayish hair pulled into a pony-tail, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a dark colored jacket, possibly a bomber jacket or hooded sweatshirt, and denim jeans.

If you have any information about the incident or the suspect, please call the Los Angeles Police Department at 1-877-LAPD-24-7.
