We investigate electronic excitations in La$$_{2-x}$$(Br,Sr)$$_x$$CuO$$_4$$ using resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) at the oxygen $$K$$ edge. We observed momentum-dependent spectral weight below 1 eV, which is consistent with theoretical calculation of the dynamical charge structure factor on oxygen orbitals in a three-band Hubbard model. Our results confirm that the momentum-dependent charge excitations exist on the order of the transfer energy ($$t$$), and the broad spectral line shape indicates damped and incoherent character of the charge excitations at the energy range in the doped Mott insulators.
