The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors today extended the reward involving the fatal shooting of 22-year-old Jeremy Cornell McFarland, who was shot last September in the chest.

The decision extended the reward for another 90 days, in hopes of additional witnesses coming forward.

McFarland was fatally shot in North Long Beach, on the 700 block of East 56th Street at 4:07AM Thursday, September 24, 2015. He was found on a grass parkway, around the corner from where he once lived, shot in the chest.


The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, Megan Zabel of the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) said at the time.

Multiple witnesses said they heard the shots, but no one has come forward with a description. One bullet and six .32-caliber shell casings were recovered from the scene.

Officials said the motive is unclear and the incident is still under investigation.

No suspects are in custody at this time, according to authorities.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Long Beach homicide Detectives Malcolm Evans or Mark Bigel at 562.570.7244.
