Man Shot By Bicyclist, What's with the Naked?

Karp said he saw a “stark naked” man get out of the Rolls-Royce and walk to an ambulance. The man appeared to be bandaged, Karp said. “They quickly took him away,’’ he said. “It was surreal.”

A prominent man of wealth, Kameron Segal, was shot in his Rolls Royce, near Meltdown Comics on Sunset, Saturday. The unknown assailant, only known to be a black male at this time, was riding a bicycle and shot Kameron twice around the neck. Kameron is alive, but in critical condition.

The strangest part of the story is Kameron being naked. The article in no way explains this.

Any ideas why Kameron was naked, parked behind his business?

Update: I did think about this, but I'm not sure as the victim still had the ability to walk, but, as suggested by commenters on the times site, paramedics cut clothing off to treat gunshot victims.

Now, that could be the answer or something weirder. The LA Times writers could just be doing a poor job of explaining what happened.
