UPDATE: Venice Boardwalk Deadly Shooting

Update on the woman who was shot and killed on December 1 just before 5:30 p.m. near the Venice Beach Boardwalk.

The victim is 28-year-old Ky Thomas, who was a mother to an 8-year-old girl and 1-month-old boy. She had recently purchased a home and had received her license to broker loans in commercial trucking, a family friend said during a news conference.

The LAPD says there was some type of dispute between Thomas, her boyfriend and and three Black males who were possibly wearing hoodies. The assailants ran away from the scene. No arrests have been made in the incident. Thomas was the only one who was shot and later died from her injuries.

“It still doesn’t seem real, it’s like I’m just waiting for Ky to call me, it’s like a dream,” Cortlyn Bridges, Thomas’ mother said.

“My daughter was not a gang member, my daughter was a mother, my daughter was a loving, kind and caring person who helped anybody,” Bridges said. “My daughter was a good girl, she had a good heart.”

Anyone with information about the shooting can call LAPD’s West Bureau homicide investigators at 213-382-9470.
