Residents will hold a fundraiser next week to help out the family of Samuel and José Martinez, who were shot and killed late last month on Division Street while walking to their Cypress Park home. The suspects asked the Martinez brothers, who were accompanied by a cousin, what gang they were from. But police said none of the victims of the Sept. 25 shooting on the border of Cypress Park and Glassell Park were associated with a gang.
The brothers were buried Friday following a mass at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church in Glassell Park.
The fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 13 in Glendale. Click here for details.
