Officers from the LAPD Northeast Division and Councilman Ed Reyes are scheduled to hold a news conference on Thursday to announce a $75,000 reward to help find the killers of brothers Jose Martinez and Samuel Martinez, who were fatally shot Sept. 25 in the 2900 block of Division Street as they were walking to their Cypress Park home. Their cousin, Marvin Gonzales, was also seriously injured during the attack. The suspects opened fire after asking the victims what gang they were from. But neither of the Martinez brothers or Gonzales were in a gang, police said.
The $75,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects. Anyone with information should contact the Northeast Division.
