POLICE OFFER $2,000 FOR HELP LEADING TO ARREST

Salt Lake police are offering a $2,000 reward to the person or persons who help them make an arrest in the shooting death of a Los Angeles entertainer two weeks ago.

Angel Cortez was shot in the back at Centro Civico Mexi-cano on April 1 after several gang members refused to be searched before entering a dance at the center.Police believe Cortez was not the intended victim but say only six people of the 200 in attendance have stepped forward with information.

"Certainly others saw the shooting or have information that would be valuable to this investigation," said Lt. Jim Jensen.

The identities of people providing information will remain confidential. Callers should contact detective Chuck Oliver at 799-3735 or Sgt. Sam Hemingway at 799-3730.
