The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors agreed today to extend one $10,000 reward and establish another for information leading to convictions in two homicide cases.

At the request of Supervisor Yvonne Burke, the board extended the reward for information that helps solve the double homicide that claimed the lives of 22-year-old Clifton Hibbert Jr. and 23-year-old Kenneth Patterson.

Hibbert and Patterson were shot in front of an apartment building in Exposition Park near Figueroa and 43rd streets in the early morning hours of March 28. Witnesses heard gunshots but did not see the shooters.

No motive has been established. Hibbert’s father said both men were in college and uninvolved in gangs.

Anyone with information on the slayings was urged to call Los Angeles police Detective Geiger at (213) 485-1383.

The board also established a reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the shooting death of 20-year-old Anthony Adame on April 29, 2007.

Adame was attending a party in Lynwood when several members of the Southside Nutwood Watts gang arrived and took offense at seeing the victim’s friends dancing with some of the girls at the party, police said.

As Adame and his friends were leaving, armed gang members opened fire. His friends tried to get the wounded young man to Centinela Hospital, but the driver lost control of the vehicle, which slammed into a utility pole in Inglewood.
