ALAMEDA COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) — Gov. Gavin Newsom is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the killing of a 16-year-old boy in January of 2017. Lamar Murphy was 16 and was riding his bicycle near his home in Hayward when he was gunned down.

He was just a few doors down from his home on Smalley Avenue at Princeton Street at the time. The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office has exhausted all investigative leads and requested that a reward be offered to encourage anyone with information to contact investigators, according to a news release sent out by the governor’s office.

“I don’t understand why someone would do this to him? He was known by everybody, loved by everybody. I don’t know of him fighting with anybody,” the boy’s mother, Tonya Richards told KRON4, one year after her son’s death.
