Rene Balbuena and his 15-year-old son responded to an online post Saturday evening and went to the intersection of West 92nd Street and South Gramercy Place, said Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department.

“He was approached by two people that made that online post … they were possibly going to rob him,” Madison said.

An official with the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office said Balbuena was shot about 7:40 p.m. in front of his son.
