WillowBrook, CA– Los Angeles Police shot and killed Ryan Twyman around 7:30 p.m yesterday in the parking lot of an apartment complex located on 132nd and San Pedro.

A vigil was held this evening in honor of Twyman, and was also attended by Black Lives Matter Los Angeles.

Twyman was in the car with another male when they were approached by police. It is still unclear what led to the shooting. According to Black Lives Matter who has been in touch with the family, Twyman’s friend and girlfriend were taken into custody following the shooting.

Security officers who work at the apartment complex were also taken into custody, stripped of their clothing, guns, and questioned in separate rooms.

“Ryan just turned 24. He was a loving young father, brother, and son. He was unarmed and complying with officers when LA County Sheriff deputies murdered him last night. After they killed Ryan, they beat his friend, who had to be hospitalized for his injuries, and beat and arrested his girlfriend. His family is asking for your support. Bring a candle and your voice. “
