Reginald Doucet, Jr, a 25-year-old Playa Vista resident, posted this video to his Twitter account on his way out in Hollywood last night — just hours before he was shot and killed by an LAPD officer.
“I live for this,” he says in the video. “I could be dead right now, and I’m still doing what I’m doing.”
Doucet was apparently on his way to Drai’s Hollywood, the rooftop nightclub at the W Hotel. When he returned home to Playa Vista later that night, he engaged in an argument with his cab driver. That’s when a nearby resident both the driver and nearby residents called the police.
