An anonymous tipster is set to receive a $250,000 reward for his help in solving a seven-year-old homicide.

The killing happened April 4, 2006, when Willie Allen, aka Johnny Allen, pictured, was exiting a Fillmore Street store and was attacked by a man with a knife. He died that night.

Two years later, then-Mayor Gavin Newsom announced a $250,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Allen’s killer.

A man known only as John Doe provided information that led to a guilty plea and subsequent state prison sentence for the killer, whose identity was not immediately available.

The Board of Supervisors is set to authorize the reward payment during its meeting Tuesday.
