Los Angeles, CA — Rewards are often offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a wanted fugitive. Usually the money is pledged by a concerned citizen or local business in order to aid the police in bringing a criminal to justice. Sometimes the suspect has already been identified, as was the case with the manhunt for Christopher Dorner in 2013. In other instances, the money will be offered to help identify the perpetrator of a seemingly random act of violence.
On Friday evening at approximately 8:40 pm, Kameron Segal, 48, was shot at least twice in Hollywood. Segal, who owns the real estate management company Williams Holdings Inc., was sitting in his Rolls-Royce behind his office on Sunset Boulevard when an unknown assailant rode up on a bicycle and opened fire on him before riding away.
The shooter is said to be a black man who wore dark clothes and was riding on what looked like either a ten-speed or racing bicycle. Despite searching the area, police have been unable to locate the suspect or establish a motive. On Monday, Williams Holdings Inc. announced that it was offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. Segal is currently recovering from injuries sustained in the shooting at Cedars-Sinai Hospital.
In cases like this one, there are a number of potential charges that a suspect could face. Depending on what police and prosecutors believe the motive to be, both assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder could be charged, as well as possible firearms charges.
