CYPRESS PARK — The City Council is scheduled to vote on a $50,000 reward in connection with the New Year’s Day fatal stabbing of 22-year-old Christian Nino.
Nino, 22, died after being stabbed once during a fight that was reported shortly after 2 am on Jan. 1 in the 2600 block of Jefferies Avenue, according to the LAPD. The suspects, described as male Latinos between 18- to 20-years of age, were seen running north on Jeffries and then eastbound on Avenue 28, police said.
Detectives working on the case have not been able to identify a suspect or suspects in the killing. “Detectives believe that a reward may compel members of the public to provide information on the identity of the person or persons responsible for this crime,” said a city council motion introduced by First District Councilman Gil Cedillo.
Update: The City Council approved the reward on Aug. 15
