Supervisors Offer $10K Reward In Slaying Of Westmont Man

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A $10,000 reward was offered Tuesday for information leading to whoever fatally shot a man in Westmont in late 2009.

Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas recommended the reward in the case of Waymon Weston, 20, who was shot as he stood outside his home in the 1100 block of West 90th Street in unincorporated Westmont about 10 p.m. on Oct. 19, 2009.

Sheriff’s deputies say two men walked up to Weston and asked about his gang affiliation before opening fire, then speeding off in a dark-colored sedan.

“We have some leads, but the case has gone cold,” said sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Gray, who requested the reward.

Anyone with information about the case can call Gray or Sgt. Martin L. Rodriguez at (323) 890-5500 or (888) 412-7463.
