The family of Lareanz Simmons, the 14-year-old Riverside Poly High School student who was fatally shot last month, said they are hoping a $50,000 reward will lead to an arrest in the case.
"I know someone knows something," said Bernice Hobdy, the victim's grandmother.
"I know someone knows who did this, and if you would just come, just come and tell someone because it's something we're all going to have to live with," she said at a Monday news conference.
Detectives said Simmons (pictured, right) was not in a gang and they do not believe the shooting was done in retaliation.
The teen was shot near a relative's home on Feb. 23. A funeral is scheduled for Tuesday in Riverside.
A combined $50,000 in reward money is being offered in the case. Anonymous tips can be made by calling 1-800-782-7463.
