LA officials to offer $75K reward in TV director's death

James Marcus Howe was fatally shot when a man posing as a solicitor knocked on his door and forced his way inside

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES  — Los Angeles officials are offering a $75,000 reward in the fatal home-invasion shooting of a director on the reality TV show "America's Next Top Model."

Councilman Jose Huizar introduced the motion Friday in an effort to spur leads in the Nov. 27 killing of 42-year-old James Marcus Howe.

Police say a man posing as a solicitor knocked on Howe's door in the Eagle Rock neighborhood at 10:55 a.m. and tried to force his way inside.

A fight ensued, and another man pulled out a handgun, opening fire. Howe's wife was injured, but their 6-year-old son unharmed.

Police are looking for two men in their late teens or early 20s and a woman. They were driving a Ford Mustang.
