Police hope a $1,000 reward will help them track down whoever shot and killed a 23-year-old man on a Cathedral City roadway on Sunday night.

Jonathan Becerra was found lying on the side of the road at 10:21 p.m. in the area of Ortega Road and Rancho Vista Drive, according to Cathedral City police Lt. Glen Haas.

Paramedics tried life-saving measures, but Becerra died of his injuries at 10:31 p.m., Haas said.

Detectives have no suspect information, nor have they established a motive. ``The police department is seeking assistance from the public,'' Haas said. ``This investigation will continue, and any information the public can provide is greatly appreciated.''
