The office of City Councilman Bernard Parks is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the fatal Christmas Day shooting of a young mother in front of her 3-year-old daughter in South Los Angeles, authorities said.

Kashmier James, 25, was shot about 10:20 p.m. Saturday after celebrating the holiday with family. She had stopped to visit a friend in the 1700 block of 85th Street near Western Avenue.

As James stood in the street outside her friend's home, two men in a blue Chevrolet Tahoe pulled up and stopped, police said. One of the men got out and fired nine shots at James, striking her at least once in the head.

Her daughter witnessed the shooting from the back seat of James' car and was unharmed.
