DJ Gio was identified by family and friends as one of the victims in the early-morning fatal shooting on the 2500 block of Amelia Earhart Avenue, several steps from DJ Gio’s home.
“I came upon my son’s body right there, where the flowers are. Those stains that you see there, that’s his blood running to the curb,” said DJ Gio’s mother Anita Razo in a previous FOX40 report.
The shooting took place on April 10 at 3:25 a.m. and two men died from gunshot wounds, according to police.
