Reward in Calvin Gray Case

Calvin Gray 1Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and the Professional Peace Officers Association are offering a $30,000 reward in the case of Sheriff’s Department Security Officer Calvin Gray who was shot to death in July while off duty as he dropped his son off at a relative’s home in the Vermont Knolls community of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Police Department Homicide detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in obtaining any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for Gray’s death.

“When the public and law enforcement work together, it benefits all of us,” Supervisor Ridley-Thomas. “This senseless act has resulted in a lifetime of grieving for Mr. Gray’s family and friends.”

Gray was hired by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department on October 10, 2010, and was assigned to the County Services Bureau. His first assignment within the Bureau was providing security at the Maravilla Senior Center in the City of Los Angeles. He worked at the Center for approximately two years before being assigned to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in the unincorporated area of Torrance.

“The Professional Peace Officers Association is offering this reward to not only to bring Calvin’s murders to justice, but also to take these violent killers off the streets so they cannot hurt other innocent souls,” said Lt. Brian Moriguchi, President of the Professional Peace Officers Association.

He was known as a family man who volunteered his time mentoring children in Los Angeles. He was the youngest son born to Margaret and Bernard Gray. He leaves behind four children and a large family including four sisters and twelve brothers.

Anyone with information can call LAPD Robbery Homicide Division (213) 486-6890 or the afterhours Tip Line: 1-877-527-3247.
