Aniya was shot in the head during a robbery. She died in hospital.

Authorities in Los Angeles are offering a $50,000 (€39,000) for information about the 2 October murder of a transgender woman.

Earlier this month, 47-year-old Aniya Parker was shot in the head trying to escape from three men near Kenmore and Melrose Avenues.

According to KTLA 5, a local news station, security video from local businesses shows the victim and suspects in a dispute.

Parker runs away but is chased by one of the men, who shoots at her. When officers arrived to the scene, she was discovered with a gunshot wound to the head. Parker was pronounced dead at hospital.

‘From what we’ve been told by witnesses, it appears … that it may be a robbery gone bad,’ LAPD police Lt. Joe Losorelli said, according to KTLA.
