May 25, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
A $50,000 reward was offered Tuesday for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of 40-year old Mark Tucker. He is accused of the shooting and attempted murder of his ex-girlfriend. Detectives from LAPD's Southeast Area, along with Representatives from Councilmember Bernard Parks Office, held a News Conference to announce the reward.

According to detectives, on March 30, 2010, at 10:30 p.m., officers responded to a report of a shooting at a home in South Los Angeles. When officers arrived, they found a 36-year-old female with a gunshot wound to the back. Detectives say Tucker and the victim had been having an argument when Tucker shot the victim and ran from the location. There were two children present during the shooting.

Tucker is described as a black man, 5'10" tall, weighing 200 lbs., with two distinctive tattoos: "Breanna" on his right arm and "Quitico" on his left arm.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Southeast Major Assault Crime Detectives Richard Carrillo at (213) 972-7861. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.
