Patrick Addo Odoi-Kyene, a 47-year-old black man, was shot and killed Dec. 30 in the 4200 block of Via Marina Court in Marina Del Rey, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

Odoi-Kyene was found in the early morning hours in a parking lot of an upscale apartment complex with multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.



Dec. 2, 2015, 7 p.m.: A previous version of this report misspelled Odoi-Kyene's name as Odoikyene.


Witnesses heard multiple gunshots and saw a man “wearing dark clothing and a dark hooded sweatshirt” running from the scene.  

Odoi-Kyene was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:10 a.m., said Ed Winter, a spokesman with the coroner’s office.  

In an email sent to residents of the Shores apartments, management identified Odoi-Kyene as a “courtesy patrol” team member.  

A person with knowledge of the incident who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still ongoing said courtesy patrol members are employees of an outside firm who assist the complex’s residents and visitors.

Anyone with information is asked call the Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
