Reward offered in search for killer of 2 men during street-takeover event in Compton

Homicide investigators offered a $20,000 reward Friday in their search for whoever shot and killed two men during a street-takeover event in Compton last year.

The victims, identified as 19-year-old Javier Menchaca and 22-year-old Juan Orozco, were parked in their vehicle in the 1900 block of North Bullis Road as the event was taking place nearby around 1 a.m. on Nov. 14, 2021.

That’s when an unknown suspect walked up to the front passenger door of their vehicle and shot both men at close range through the window, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Menchaca and Orozco were shot multiple times and died from their wounds.

Family members of the victims attended a news conference to announce the reward Friday and pleaded for the public’s help in finding the killers.

The $20,000 reward was offered in exchange for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the shooting deaths.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the Sheriff’s Department at 323-890-5500. Those who prefer to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
