LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A $10,000 reward was being offered today for information that helps detectives solve the killing of a tow truck driver who was gunned down six years ago on this date in Norwalk.
Robert Garcia, 22, of Norwalk was shot just before midnight on June 28, 2012, near the office of the towing company in the 13500 block of Norwalk Boulevard, the sheriff's department reported. Detectives planned a news conference later this morning at the Hall of Justice in downtown Los Angeles to announce the reward and seek help in solving the crime.``As he walked back to the office ... three men approached him,'' a sheriff's statement said.
``Robert fled eastbound on Front Street toward the business, but was fatally shot multiple times at the front door of the building.''Surveillance video showed Garcia pounding on the door to the business before collapsing to the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene.``Robert was a hardworking provider for his budding family, and had two small children at the time of his death,'' the statement said.
The reward was offered by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killers.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
