He was confronted by at least one attacker who opened fire about 3:30 p.m. No arrests have been made, the LAPD said.

The Los Angeles Unified School District sent a memo to teachers in Venice, alerting them about the shooting deaths of two former students on Nov. 3 and asking them to watch for any suspicious activity. The memo said McKillian attended Venice High for a short period.
