PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The Phoenix Police Department and U.S. Marshals Service have increased a reward leading to the arrest of a Phoenix street gang member wanted in the fatal drive-by shooting of a bystander in 2009.

Cameron Leezell Taylor was indicted for numerous offenses in connection with the south-side Phoenix shooting, including attempted first-degree murder, endangerment, aggravated assault, and assisting a criminal street gang, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service.

A warrant was issued but Taylor disappeared and has not been seen in the area since, the release said.

A stray bullet struck the bystander during the shooting in March 2009.

Phoenix police and marshals have followed numerous leads over the past four years, but Taylor has not been found, according the release.

U.S. Marshals have the reward to $5,000 for information leading directly to Taylor's arrest. Up to an additional $1,000 is available through Silent Witness.

"Cameron Taylor is truly one of the 'worst of the worst,'" said David P. Gonzales, U.S. Marshal for the District of Arizona. "His flagrant disregard for the law has earned him our attention. We will continue to offer our full support to the Phoenix Police Department in tracking down this public enemy and bringing him to justice."

The most recent photographs of Taylor are from 2009, so he may weigh more, have changed his hair style or altered his appearance in other ways, according to the release.

He also might have the words "Blood Money" tattooed across his hands or fingers, the marshals said.

He also has a gunshot wound on one or both hands, and might go by the nickname, "Woo."

Anyone with information is urged to call U.S. Marshals toll-free at 1-877-WANTED2 (926-8332), or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (948-6377). Taylor is considered armed and extremely dangerous.
