A $50,000 reward is being offered to help solve the 2016 murder of a 30-year-old man who was standing outside his Willowbrook home when he was stuck by gunfire.

Family and friends of DeAndre Hughes say they are looking for clues. He was shot several times in front of his home across from Magic Johnson Park on July 17, 2016.

His mother says he was her second child to be murdered.

"My heart is shattered," she said. "My heart is broken. Just help us. I'm begging."

Hughes was shot outside his home after a car pulled up and someone opened fire. Authorities have said there are likely multiple witnesses because people had gathered at the park across the street.
