Cops investigate theory Jared Bridegan was 'lured' after he stopped when spotting tire in road before being shot

MICROSOFT Executive Jared Bridegan, 33, was gunned down on a Florida road on his way home to St. Augustine, Florida.

Now, police are investigating a theory that Bridegan's killer, or killers, lured him out of his car intentionally by placing a tire in the middle of the road.

Bridegan was driving home with his two-year-old daughter Bexley when he encountered a tire in the middle of the one-way road they were on.

Rather than running it over, Bridegan got out of his car to move the tire.

Now, Sergeant Tonya Tator of the Jacksonville Beach Police Department told Fox News that crews are investigating a theory that the tire was placed there on purpose.

Tator says the killers may have set the tire on the road to force Bridegan out of his car and make it easier to access him.

While out of his car, Bridegan was shot and killed as Bexley watched from her car seat.

While there is no surveillance footage of the killing, several residents in the area picked up the sound of gunshots on their home security systems.

No suspects have been identified in the killing, however, police are on the lookout for a car of interest.

The police department has released stills from nearby camera footage of a dark Ford F-150 that they are calling a "vehicle of interest" in the investigation.

Tator says that the police department is currently offering a $30,000 reward for any information on the vehicle in question.

"It was pure cowardice and evil," Kirsten Bridegan, Bridegan's wife, told Fox News. "To have that done where he didn’t even have a chance to fight back, and it was done in front of his daughter. I would ask anyone who knows anything to come forward."
