$125,000 reward offered for arrest, conviction in slayings of 2 Chinese students near USC
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Authorities are offering a $125,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who shot and killed two Chinese graduate students near the University of Southern California this week.
Police and USC officials made the announcement Friday in the case of Ming Qu and Ying Wu. The 23-year-old electrical engineering students were fatally shot while sitting in a car in an off-campus neighborhood.
Authorities have not yet released a description of the shooter, who fled on foot in the rain.
Investigators said the attack Wednesday might have been part of a robbery or attempted carjacking, but other possibilities have not been discounted.
The students, both from Beijing, were on track to graduate in December.
