Kameron Segal was on the driver's side of the late-model silver and black Rolls Royce in the parking lot behind Meltdown Comics (map) when a bicyclist rode up to the car around 8:40 p.m. Friday and opened fire, according to the Lt. Murray and officers from the Los Angeles Police Department.

Segal was hit from close range once each in the neck and check, police said. He was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital where he was last reported to be in stable condition.

The gunman fled the scene on a 10-speed bike and remained at large as of Saturday morning.

He was described by witnesses as a black male in his late 30s or early 40s, LAPD Det. Raymond Conboy said. He was last seen wearing a dark blue hat and blue jacket, and was carrying a backpack.

It was not immediately clear if Segal had been targeted or if he was the victim of a random crime.

“Could be robbery. I couldn’t tell you for sure, some people would just go out and shoot somebody," Conboy said. "At this time, I can’t guess what the motive would be.”

A man had been taken into custody a few blocks from the scene, but police later let him go after determining he was not involved in the shooting.
