LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Coroner's officials Sunday released the name of a 40-year-old man who was shot and killed after he was confronted by two people in South Los Angeles.

The victim was identified as Taurean Davis of Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department's Southeast Division responded at approximately 9 p.m. Friday to Main Street and Century Boulevard, where they learned Davis was approached by the suspects, who both opened fire on him and then ran away from the scene, an LAPD spokeswoman told City News Service.

Davis then got into a vehicle, where police and paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department found him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

No suspect description was released.
