Detectives on Tuesday asked for help locating a suspect in the February shooting of a Culver City police officer.

Police say Harold Eugene Taylor, 27, of Los Angeles is often in the South-Central neighborhood around Florence and Vermont avenues.

“We’ve exhausted all our leads in trying to locate him,” said Culver City Detective Jon West. “There’s up to a $30,000 reward offered for the arrest or conviction of anyone involved in the shooting of the officer.”


Officer Travis Marschall was shot in the throat while pursuing suspects in a Culver City robbery Feb. 19. He is recovering from injuries that affected his voice.

Taylor, who is wanted in Nevada for a parole violation, is described as 6 feet tall, 150 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He is considered armed and dangerous.

Two other suspects remain in the Los Angeles County Jail awaiting preliminary hearings.

Joseph McAdams, 37, of Los Angeles is being held without bail. Alcoa Cooke, 21, of Hawthorne is being held on $1 million bail. Both were charged with armed robbery and attempted murder of a police officer.

Police have recovered property linking the suspects to a series of robberies and carjackings in which victims were followed to their homes and attacked.
