Memory of Echo Park shooting victim to be honored with “Echo Love” celebration

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).

  1. Thanks Eastsider, once again you are first and possibly the only source of information regarding the tragic death/murder of Michael “Mickey” David.

    I have your site as my opening page on my computer…Keep up the good work.


  2. PLEASE contribute to the Michael David Memorial Fund. He left behind two children who need your help. Even a small donation is better than nothing.

  3. Great idea B.E., but I thought that the mother of his child said that she doesn’t want any help.

  4. I am the Mother to his oldest and NO i do not want any part of this trust fund…I am sure his daughter needs it more.. I only wanted and wish michael got to know where he was laid to rest instead i had to bring him to the corner of sunset and Logan since that was his last place… as i write this michael wants his name kept out of it.. micky will be here in spirit for michael and his grandmother is not around nor wants to be so… keep my son out of this and i wont comment. thank you very much and keep your comments about my comment to your self too. Have a good life to his family and friends
