The Los Angeles City Council approved a $50,000 reward Tuesday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the shooting death of a South Los Angeles man.

Melvin James Comeaux Jr., 28, was walking near the corner of Normandie Avenue and 94th Place on Aug. 24, 2008, when he was gunned down by two men riding bicycles.

The suspects fled the scene.

Comeaux later succumbed to his injuries. He was a counselor for disabled people at the Signs of Life group home in South Los Angeles.

There's no word on a motive.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
