The family and friends of Michael “Micky” David, who was fatally shot nearly two months ago in Echo Park as he was being chased down Sunset Boulevard, will hold a public memorial service next month in Griffith Park. The July 10 ceremony, called “Echo Love,” is being described as a celebration of the life of David, a 30-year-old father who worked at the Trader Joe’s in Silver Lake.
“I know it took us a while but I think it will be a wonderful afternoon in the park. One Micky would have loved,” said David’s mother, Jeanne David, in an email. The memorial announcement reads:
Let’s remember Micky and celebrate the time he was here and the lives he touched. Family and friends are coming together to enjoy memories, music and food. So let’s keep this spirit going and echo the love!
David died after being shot near the corner of Logan Street and Sunset Boulevard. Jeffrey Cardona, 23, has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with David’s killing. However, Cardona is not believed to be the shooter and police continue to search for other suspects.
Persons with information about the shooting should call Rampart Homicide detectives Arteaga at 213-484-3639 or Linscomb at 213-484-3642. Those who want to remain anonymous should call at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).
