The murder of William Cox and the wounding of Edward Williams Description and Date of Crime: The murder of William Cox and the wounding of Edward Williams - 11/13/2005 Location: Jefferson Park, 3700 block of Second Avenue near Exposition Boulevard Reward Amount and Date Offered: $5,000 - 11/15/2005 Deadline to Provide Information to Law Enforcement Agency: 02/13/2006 Deadline to Submit Claim to Executive Office: 04/14/2006
At its meeting held November 15, 2005, the Board took the following action:
Supervisor Burke made the following statement:“On Sunday, November 13, 2005, at approximately 7:00 p.m. in the 3700 block of Second Avenue near Exposition Boulevard, 14-year-old William Cox was shot in the upper torso and died at the scene. Edward Williams, also 14-year-old, was critically wounded, but is in stable condition.
“William Cox was not a gang member, and it was not immediately determined if the violence was gang related. When he didn’t come home from a children’s carnival in Jefferson Park, his mother went to look for him, and that is when she learned of the shooting.
“According to Lt. John Pasquariello, the shootings were preceded by some sort of angry confrontation outside the carnival. The gunman fired about five shots before fleeing on foot and disappearing in an unknown direction.”
Therefore, on motion of Supervisor Burke, seconded by Supervisor Molina, unanimously carried, the Board established a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of William Cox, and the wounding of Edward Williams by a gunman at a children’s carnival at Jefferson Park located in the 3700 block of Second Avenue near Exposition Boulevard, at approximately 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 13, 2005.
