$10,000 reward offered in Long Beach shooting

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is offering a $10,000 reward to help find the person who fatally shot a 35-year-old man at a Long Beach apartment complex in June.

On June 28, police responded to a 911 call in 700 block of Linden Avenue involving a shooting victim. The man, later identified as Iran Maese, was pronounced dead at the scene.

During the investigation, detectives obtained surveillance video that shows a "subject of interest" whom they want the public's help identifying. The video shows the man walking on Frontenac Court near 7th Street around the time of the killing. The man was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt and long, dark-colored shorts.

(Police released two other videos, which are linked to in a department news release.)

Anyone who recognizes the individual in the video or has information related to the incident is urged to contact Long Beach police homicide Dets. Mark Bigel and Sean Irving at (562) 570-7244. Anonymous tips may be submitted by calling (800) 222-8477, texting TIPLA and your tip to CRIMES (274637), or going to lacrimestoppers.org.
