Keith Alan Hasson, 48

Keith Alan Hasson, a 48-year-old black man, was shot and killed Saturday, Sept. 6, in the 4300 block of West 28th Street in Jefferson Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 6:20 p.m., Hasson exited the backdoor of the Living Room bar and walked down an alley, said LAPD Det. Sal LaBarbera. Hasson was then confronted by a black man who pulled out a gun and “without provocation” shot him, LaBarbera said.

The gunman ran west on West 28th Street and may have gotten into a dark-colored SUV.

Hasson was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:23 p.m., said Ed Winter, the assistant chief of investigations at the coroner’s office.
