The Board of Supervisors today offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to whoever fatally shot a 16-year-old Duarte boy in the back two days before Christmas.

Christopher Rossi was behind his apartment building in the 2500 block of Huntington Drive on Dec. 23 when he was shot three times in the back about 11:30 p.m.,  police said.

The boy's father, Daniel, told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune he heard what he thought were five cherry bombs before neighbors screamed. Rossi ran out to find Christopher facedown in a carport, already dead.

Supervisor Michael Antonovich, who recommended the reward, said detectives were seeking the public's help in tracking down those responsible. Anyone with more information was asked to call sheriff's homicide Detectives Barry Hall and Richard Biddle at 323-890-5500.
