This is not anything different that doesn’t happen in any other city. Those who criticize or complain about Norwalk or Compton or any other city in America and don’t rally to make a change or be part of a solution are cowards. Those who move out of Norwalk to cities a stones throw away are fooling themselves that they are moving into better communities. The truth is danny boy being in the “BARRIO” 20yrs your probably just running from any mistakes you made while you where here and Lucky you never got caught up like this poor unfortunate 15 yr old.

Alex's death has been painful for all of us;; a big part of our school population is suffering & mourning;; & most of all praying for his family.
To answer questions; No, Alex had not been gang related. The Reason for the gunshots is not yet publicized & i wouldn't like to be the first to say it, that's the family's right.
Thank you for all your condolences, I'm sure Alex is thanking you all too from that better place;;
RIP Alexx<3

My prayers go out to this young kid who was cut short of his future. May the Lord rest his soul and his family find comfort in the creater of the universe. God knows all our hearts and for those who did this will answer in the court above on judgement day. My nephew plays at the park right down the street and we mostly are in Norwalk, thats where we grew up. Its ignorance and the enemy who keeps evil in this world.

RIP alex, I hope you are looking down and watching over us. You didnt deserve this, but now you're in that better place. I pray for you and your family...
Having that one class w/ you and having talked to you for a little makes me feel better knowing that I did know you. Never forgotten Alex...never.

VNWK's territory is the varrio north
of Alondra,the oneways south of Alondra
and the circle neighborhood east of
Norwalk Blvd and oneways to Bloomfield.
When my wife was going to Exselsior hs
(were are that old)the Varrio and the
oneways were 2 distinct neighborhoods
that didn't get along.The oneways ate
at the jackinthebox on Pioneer after
school and the VarrioNorwalk kids ate
at Douglasburgers on Pioneer.Over time
they became one varrio and absorbed the
Circle along the way.

REST IN PEACE Alex, we love you. You didn't deserve this.. you had your whole life ahead of you. I'll never forget all those memories.. they'll always be in my heart. Those twins! Always making us laugh. I'll always remember that. I am THANKFUL and HONORED that you were in my life. Anybody that knew you, knew how great a person you were. My most sincere condolences go to you Ernie and your family. You'll never be forgotten Alex. You'll forever be in our hearts.
