A Hawthorne bodyguard who offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot and wounded his K-9 partner continued searching Wednesday for the gunman.
Kris Herzog, who says he is a bodyguard who works with his K-9 “Bear,” said his dog was shot in the leg shortly after midnight Tuesday.
“I ran to the backyard where I found my dog screaming, yelling in pain,” Herzog said of the incident.
Footage of the incident captured by a security camera showed the dog standing on a jacuzzi cover when he fell to the floor.
Herzog then grabbed what appeared to be a gun and ran to help his dog, video showed.
Herzog says he has worked for numerous celebrities, with the Bodyguard Group of Beverly Hills and is a veteran.
Herzog has received numerous threats and believes he was the intended target, he said.
A $10,000 reward was being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the gunman.
