Marcus Lemonis, the host of CNBC's "The Profit" and a South Florida native, has offered $100,000 for aid in finding the person or persons who fired at concertgoers in northwest Miami-Dade on Sunday morning.

"$100,000 is a lot of money, but I'm also smart enough to know that people react to capital," said Lemonis.

He went on to say that if we are going to resolve things, "unfortunately currency is one of those motivators for people."

Watch the full interview below.

Lemonis tweeted his offer just hours after the news broke Sunday morning.

After Lemonis' announcement, Director of Miami-Dade PD Alfredo Ramirez III and Miami Police Chief Art Acevedo thanked the South Florida native.
