Bryant Tennelle, 18

Bryant Tennelle, 18, a young black man, was shot in the head in front of 1858 W. 80th St. near St. Andrews Street in Los Angeles. The assailant walked up to Bryant and shot him. He was taken to a hospital, where he died at 9:30 p.m. Friday, May 11.

He was the son of the LAPD Robbery-Homicide detective. Police are asking anyone with information to call (213) 485-1383.

Update: This case has been solved. A 25-year-old black man, and a 16-year-old black youth, have been arrested and charged with the murder of Bryant Tennelle. They probably had no idea they were killing the son of a police officer. They both face trial. The arrests were the work of LAPD South Bureau Det. John Skaggs.
