Los Angeles police today announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who killed the 30-year-old coach of a basketball team for deaf students at Fairfax High School.

Eddy Hernandez, who is a deaf mute himself, was walking in the 3700 block of South Main Street around 10:40 p.m. Jan. 26 when he was killed by a single gunshot, police said.

Because he was found in an area with a lot of vehicle and pedestrian traffic, Newton Division homicide detectives sought the public's help in finding his killer.

Anyone with information was asked to call detectives Louie Calzadillas at (323) 846-6556 or David Torres at (323) 290-6063.
