A man offered a Hollywood hitman to kill his ex-girlfriend while he watched Game 5 of the NBA Finals, according to the Hollywood Police Department.
The suspected hitman, Bobby Jimmy Cook, 30, was arrested and charged with premeditated murder Thursday.
The murder of Pamela Chamberlain, 22, took place on June 16 at the corner of her home in the 6500 block of Grant Court. Her former boyfriend, Sherard “Prince” Adams, planned the crime, according to an arrest report.
Adams called Chamberlain and asked her to meet him outside her home. As she waited for Adams, who was watching the Heat game, Cook rode in on his motorcycle and shot her five times.
Cook left the scene on the bike, going 80 miles per hour on the highway and ditched the .38 caliber handgun.
The shooting suspect bragged about killing Chamberlain to friends, according to the arrest report.
One of his friends, who later became an informant, told the police about Cook’s involvement in the scheme.
According to the report, Adams told Cook that he would give him $5,000 up front and another $5,000 after he killed the target. He also gave him the gun used to end her life, police said.
During one of the undercover meetings, Cooked complained to the informant that Adams had not given him the second half of the money.
Chamberlain was targeted because she knew about Adams’ “illegal credit card activity” and threatened to blackmail him, according to the report.
Although Adams has not been arrested or charged, the investigation is ongoing and he is being actively investigated.
