Los Angeles police and city officials will announce a $75,000 reward for information in the fatal shooting of a reality TV director and writer who was killed in a home-invasion robbery at his Glassell Park home the day before Thanksgiving.

James Marcus Howe was attacked Nov. 27 when he answered his front door after hearing a knock, authorities said.

When he opened the door, three people stormed into the house, shooting and killing Howe and seriously injuring his wife. Their 6-year-old was not injured.
