Enrique Dominguez-Rodriguez, 45

Enrique Dominguez-Rodriguez, a 45-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Sunday, Sept. 10 in the 2000 block of West Venice Boulevard in Harvard Heights, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 10:15 p.m., Dominguez-Rodriguez and another man had just left a bar and were driving when Dominguez-Rodriguez “cat-called” a woman standing on the corner of Venice Boulevard and Normandie Avenue, said Los Angeles Police Lt. John Radtke.

There was an exchange of words between Dominguez-Rodriguez and some men who were with the woman, and Dominguez-Rodriguez’s vehicle pulled into a strip mall nearby, Radtke said.

Dominguez-Rodriguez got out of the car and exchanged words with another man, who pulled out a gun and shot him, Radtke said.

Dominguez-Rodriguez was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:22 p.m., according to coroner’s records.

The man Dominguez-Rodriguez was with was “pistol-whipped,” Radtke said.
