POMONA, Calif. (AP) - A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever shot an 8-year-old boy to death as he was about to have dinner at a Southern California home.

Police in Pomona announced the reward Monday for information in the slaying of Jonah Hwang.

The boy died Feb. 20 after being shot in the head during a suspected drive-by shooting. At least three bullets hit the home but no one else was struck.

Police said Jonah and his family were visiting a Pomona home for dinner when someone shot at the home.

His family has said Jonah was adopted from an orphanage in Taiwan less than three years ago.

Police have not yet determined a motive for the shooting.
