Deborah Tovar organized a plate sale to help the family with funeral expenses. She said the family also wants to relocate.

There are “a lot of the families here. There was five apartments that were shot up. So a lot of the kids that are in our area, they're going to school, they're staying at relatives because they don't feel safe at home anymore,” Tovar said.
