Supervisor Janice Hahn recommended extending a reward set to expire July 29 in the shooting of 46-year-old Joseph Moser.

Around 11 p.m. on March 30, 2016, Moser was bicycling by himself near the intersection of 16th St. and Pine Ave. when a group of people walked up and started talking to him. One of them pulled out a weapon and shot him.

Detectives say Moser was not a gang member and did not appear to be doing anything illegal that led to his death.

Police said two suspects ran east on 16th St. after firing on Moser and then ran up behind a different man and hit him on the head with a gun, knocking him to the ground. Police said they did not believe there were any ties between the two victims.

Anyone with more information was urged to call Long Beach police Detective Donald Goodman at (562) 570-5726.
