ABC 7 reported that police believe the shooting was gang-related and not a random attack. A GoFundMe has been started to help raise money for the victims’ family. “This little family had a whole life ahead of them, but tragically their lives were cut short,” the GoFundMe organizer wrote. “Now a baby will have to grow up without her parents and families will have to live with the pain that this senseless act of violence has caused them.” The fundraiser began Wednesday and seeks to raise $30,000. “Although he was a young father, Carlos loved his family very much and was working to give them a better life,” the organizer said. “He grew up in a single-parent home and as he grew up he helped his mother with the responsibilities of being a provider.” Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the South Bureau’s Homicide Division Southeast Team, Detectives Fraga and Ybanez, at 323-786-5100 or 323-786-5500.
