DOWNEY – The son of rapper DJ Quik was charged Tuesday with murdering a man after a fight at a home in Downey.
David Martin Blake, 27, is charged with the May 25 killing of Julio Cardoza, who was shot following a dispute in the 13200 block of Carfax Avenue, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Blake, who was in a car nearby, allegedly fatally shot Cardoza and then drove away, according to prosecutors.
The 33-year-old victim, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds, died that day at a hospital, according to records from the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
Blake is set to be arraigned June 14 in a Norwalk courtroom.
Blake was the liaison to former Compton City Councilman Isaac Galvan who was removed from the council after a judge ruled illegal votes were cast for him in the June 2021 Compton General Election.
