Few leads in shooting of California parents, baby's death

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - With no leads and no motive, investigators are pleading for the public's help to find a gunman who shot and wounded the parents and uncle of a 3-week-old baby girl from Long Beach.

The girl was later found dead in a trash bin near the Mexican border 120 miles from her home.

Long Beach Police Chief Robert Luna says the lack of direction in the investigation and the dearth of information from the injured victims is frustrating.

He said the baby's parents and uncle have spoken with police but it was too early to know if the family is withholding clues. The girl's mother and uncle remain in critical condition.

Luna said the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is expected to offer a $10,000 reward Tuesday for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
