A family is sharing their grief after a beloved father of three was killed in a Northridge strip mall shooting in April.
On April 15, 38-year-old Juan Lopez was hired as a painter to cover up gang graffiti on the exterior wall of Northridge Ice Cream.
While Juan was painting, a gunman drove up, stepped out while holding an “Uzi” type semi-automatic handgun and opened fire, striking Juan multiple times in the chest, said LAPD. Three other men who were standing nearby were also shot, police said.
Juan was pronounced dead at the scene. A father of three children, Juan was trying to earn extra money to buy his daughter a birthday cake when he was fatally shot that day.
