Hahn Establishes $20,000 Reward in South Gate Murder of Hector Ascencio Sr.

57-year-old was killed last year at his home

Los Angeles, CA – Today, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion by Supervisor Janice Hahn to establish the County’s $20,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of 57 year-old Hector Ascencio Sr. Ascencio was shot after returning to his residence on the 2500 block of Glenwood Place in the City of South Gate on the night of September 16, 2023.

“Hector was in his own home with his family when someone savagely took his life. His granddaughter watched Hector die. We need to bring his killers to justice as soon as possible, and I ask for the public’s help,” said Hahn.

A dark-colored 4-door vehicle was seen fleeing from the immediate area after the shooting. Anyone with information is urged to contact Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau Detectives Esteban Soliz and Mike Rivas at (323) 890-5500.
