LOS ANGELES - Family and friends of Darrin Kirk, a man shot in the head as he sat on his mother’s front porch in the 8800 block of South Halldale Blvd. on June 19, will participate in a candlelight vigil Wednesday July 18 at 7 p.m. to mourn his death and call on LAPD investigators to step up their search for the killer.
The vigil will take place in front of Kirk’s mother’s home located in Gramercy Park on 8813 South Halldale Blvd., where Kirk sustained the gunshot wounds that eventually led to his death.
Kirk, 45, was an avid motorcyclist and devoted father of a 2-year-old daughter, died at the California Hospital Medical Center on July 7 from the injuries he suffered June 19 as the result of the lone gunman who is still at large. According to coroner's records, Kirk died from a gunshot wound to the head.
About 100 motorcyclists will roll out to the vigil in support Kirk’s family in their attempt to seek information about his murder. According to a source, investigators will not return Kirk’s mother’s calls, even though they urged her to call them for updates.
A funeral service for Kirk will take place Friday, July 20 at 10 a.m., at the Living Room of the Faithful Central Bible Church, 400 W. Florence, Inglewood, CA 90301. A viewing will be held Thursday, July 19 at 6 p.m. at Harrison Ross Mortuary on Crenshaw Blvd.
