Authorities are offering a $30,000 reward for information in the death of a 16-year-old girl who was stuck by a stray bullet in Lynwood over Thanksgiving weekend.

Danah Rojo Rivas was sitting in the back seat of a Mustang on her way home from church on Nov. 23 when she was fatally struck, officials said.

The shooting occurred near the intersection of Long Beach Boulevard and Euclid Avenue, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s officials said.

The people involved were apparently chasing others in a vehicle when the intended target got out of his vehicle and ran away, officials said.

Danah was on the softball team at Gardena High School and was hoping to volunteer at an animal shelter.

The reward will be announced during a news conference Wednesday morning.
