LOS ANGELES– An alleged gang member accused of killing a man at a Los Angeles barber shop in 2019 has been added to the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list, authorities said Wednesday.
The FBI is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Omar Alexander Cardenas. He is considered armed and extremely dangerous, the FBI said in a statement.
Authorities believe Cardenas fled the Los Angeles area, possibly to Mexico, to avoid prosecution. He may be employed as a construction worker and there are state and federal warrants for his arrest, the statement said.
Cardenas, whose nickname is “Dollar,” is the 528th addition to the FBI’s list of notorious fugitives that dates back to 1950.
Cardenas allegedly shot Jabali Dumas with a semi-automatic handgun on August 15, 2019, at a barber shop in the Sylmar neighborhood of Los Angeles. Detectives don’t know if the men knew each other.
Cardenas, 27, is believed to be a member of the “Pierce Street” gang, the FBI said. The statement said he may also be associated with a street gang known as the “Pacoima Van Nuys Boys – Anybody Killas”.
