LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a $10,000 reward today for information leading to the gunman who killed a 34-year-old carpenter in Hawthorne this January.

Supervisor Holly Mitchell recommended the reward in the fatal shooting of Brian Greene, a father of three, who was gunned down while getting into his dark purple Infiniti M37 in the parking lot of Jack's Liquor Market at 4700 W. Imperial Highway around 4:10 p.m. on January 19.

Greene died at the scene.

Investigators say a white 2014 to 2015 BMW 320i had followed Greene from his home and parked next to the Infiniti while Greene went into the market. When he returned, someone in the back seat of the BMW fired several shots, striking Greene more than once, before the car sped off west on Imperial toward the San Diego (405) Freeway.

Sheriff's homicide detectives believe there are neighborhood witnesses who may know the identities of the gunman or the owner of the BMW. Video of the suspect vehicle released by detectives shows a large dent to the rear passenger side bumper of the BMW and additional damage above the right wheel well on the passenger side.

Mitchell urged anyone with more information to call the Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500 or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477) or lacrimestoppers.org.
