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.

    Why are we just hearing about this murder? Why didn’t the police step up its search for this killer long before like they’re doing for the men who beat the Giants fan? Also, the reward is only $10,000 for a murder when its $100,000 for a beating? Why doesn’t this sound right? It doesn’t because one victim is black and a south L.A. resident and the other is white, a paramedic and lives in the bay area. Dare we say that there isn’t any racism? How obvious do they have to make it? The reward amounts should be reversed!

      If there is racism, it’s coming from your Voice of NO Reason. The reason the reward is so different is because people DONATED to the reward being offered to bring in the gang banger cowards. The reward for the slain man is coming from the city.

    no one cares about Our Children in South Los Angeles “a voice of reason” I hear what you’re saying…. I was thinking the same thing regarding the MTV Cooridnator that was gunned down last week they found his killers faster than I could blink my eyes but of course that won’t happen in our cases of young black men dying on the streets for no reason other than some Thugs being territorial and stupid and the City has put up larger rewards than this for less than MURDER “shaking my head”
