Los Angeles Police officials are offering a $50,000 reward for information about a June bus stop shooting in South L.A. that left a mother of two dead.
Dianey Santos, 39, was standing at a bus stop near the corner of South Broadway and West 83rd Street about 9:45 p.m. on June 17 when an altercation occurred between two men, Detective Shawn Svoboda said during a news conference Tuesday morning.
One of the men shot at the other, and Santos was hit in the head by a stray bullet, Svoboda said.
The intended victim has not cooperated with police, and the suspect remains at large.
Santos was a single mother and left behind a 9-year-old daughter and a 15-year-old daughter who recently had a baby. Their godmother has taken the girls in.
"There are some times that I feel her with me," said Santos' daughter, Emily Santos. She described her mother as a "nice person" who never hurt anybody.
She and her younger sister were crying during the news conference. The girls have different fathers who are not in their lives, Emily Santos said.
She has set up a GoFundMe page to help with her mother's funeral expenses.
The suspect is believed to be a black man in his 20s and anyone with information about the shooting can call LAPD at 323 786-5113.
