Khristian Alexander Domio, a 25-year-old black man, was shot and killed Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 14115 South Crenshaw Boulevard in Hawthorne, according to Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s records.
About 8:30 p.m., officers from the Hawthorne Police Department responded to a call of shots fired at what they initially thought was a cellphone store, according to a news release from the department.
Three armed men walked into the store, which was actually an illegal marijuana dispensary, and got into a confrontation with an armed security guard, police said.
The security guard and the three men exchanged gunfire, police said.
The security guard was struck in the chest, but was wearing a bulletproof vest and was not seriously injured. One of the men, identified as Domio, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 5:46 a.m., coroner’s records show.
