Overview Help icon

18 year-old Kenney Watkins was killed in a police-involved shooting in South Los Angeles.

The incident began around 3:30 p.m. when an officer pulled over a car for a traffic stop in the 400 block of West Century Boulevard. Investigators say Watkins, a passenger, got out of the vehicle and at that point, was shot by the officer.

Police said they recovered two handguns at the scene.

The driver of the car, described only as a dark-colored sedan, drove off.

"The person is the 16th person shot by on-duty LAPD officers this year, according to data compiled by The Times. Of those, 13 people have died."
