0

West Covina police are seeking answers in the gang-related killing of a 29-year-old woman, with investigators hoping a large reward in the case will lead to more witnesses two years later.

Gabriela De Haro Perez was shot and killed on January 2, 2021 at the corner of Azusa Avenue and Amar Road in what West Covina police described as a “mistaken identity” during gang violence. Police said Perez was not involved in any gang activity.

According to West Covina police, there is now a $100,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for the murder.

Award in April 2021 that case was set at $30,000, but this week West Covina officials announced the highest reward.

Detectives continue to actively investigate Perez’s murder, according to police. They declined to release details about the shooting or the suspect vehicle, but said “we believe there are people out there who know who committed this horrific crime.”

The $100,000 reward consists of $50,000 from the West Covina City Council, $15,000 from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and $35,000 from Perez’s family.

Detectives asked anyone with information about the crime to call the police department at (626) 939-8500 or submit an anonymous tip at https://lacrimestoppers.org.
