Roberto Lopez was shot by a stray bullet on Tuesday evening as he walked on the sidewalk with his sister. This morning, police announced they've got a suspect.

In addition to the Echo Park Chamber of Commerce accepting donations on behalf of the family, a charitable fund, known as the Roberto Lopez, Jr. Memorial Fund (Acct.# 8046493014), is being managed by Wells Fargo Bank. Those wishing to make donations may go to any Wells Fargo Bank and submit a check, money order or cash. Donors who are Wells Fargo customers may also transfer funds directly. Questions about the fund may be directed to the offices of Los Angeles City Councilman Ed Reyes at (213) 485-0763.
