ENGENE - A suspect has been identified in connection with the murder of a UCLA student in Hancock Park.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, 31-year-old Shawn Laval Smith is wanted in connection with the death of Brianna Kupfer. Kupfer was found dead by a customer in a luxury furniture store during the day last week. Authorities believe her death was the result of a random attack.
Smith has been seen in Pasadena, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Covina and other parts of California, according to the LAPD.
The LAPD believes Smith is armed and dangerous. Anyone near Smith is being asked to call 911 instead of contacting him, the LAPD warns.
Earlier Tuesday, a total reward of $ 250,000 was offered to anyone who can help the LAPD track down Smith.
