Councilmen Ed Reye's office is gearing up to announce a $50,000 reward tomorrow for a tip that will lead to the capture and prosecution of whoever shot a man standing inside his apartment hallway.

On March 11, 26-year-old Freddy Carranza fell victim to a drive-by shooting on the 200 block of North Avenue 53 in Highland Park. Carranza, who was not a gang member, was in the 2nd floor hallway of his apartment building.

"There were several people who witnessed the shooting that are reluctant to come forward to speak with detectives," the LAPD said in a statement hoping that someone will speak up.
