Kadeem Broshun Palacio, 25
Kadeem Broshun Palacio, a 25-year-old black man, was fatally shot Sunday, June 11, near West 116th Street and Crenshaw Boulevard in Inglewood, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
About 6:45 p.m., Inglewood police responding to a call about a man being shot found Palacio with a gunshot wound near his heart, coroner’s records showed.
First responders attempted to save Palacio, but he was transported to a hospital and was pronounced dead at 7:03 p.m., according to coroner’s records.
Palacio’s mother told police that her son, her cousin and several others were walking near their home when a vehicle pulled alongside them. The cousin later told the mother that a man leaned out of the vehicle and asked, “Where you from?” When they explained that they were not gang members and did not want trouble, the man shot her son, who was closest to the vehicle, the mother told police.
The cousin then rushed to the mother’s home, but she was not there. A neighbor called to let her know Kadeem Palacio was in the hospital; he was dead by the time she arrived.
