A story for every victim

Keenen Devontee Hogue, 24

Keenen Devontee Hogue, a 24-year-old black man, was shot and killed Wednesday, Aug. 31, in the 2300 block of West 54th Street in Hyde Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

About 12:40 a.m., Hogue had had food delivered, took it upstairs to his apartment and went back downstairs to get change, said LAPD Det. Chris Barling. Hogue was standing on the sidewalk in front of his home waiting for change when he was shot, Barling said.

Hogue was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:11 a.m., according to coroner's records.

Hogue did not have a criminal record or any gang ties, Barling said, and at this point, the killing looks like a case of gang members mistaking someone in the neighborhood for a rival gang member.
