Silver Lake and other Communities Continue to Mourn the Tragedy at Trader Joe’s
Photos of the makeshift memorial outside of the Silver Lake Trader Joe’s store (plus one of nearby burger joint Rick’s) taken one week after the July 21 hostage takeover by a gunman and resulting police shootout. This tragedy sadly culminated in the death of store manager Melyda Corado and great trauma to the store crew and community.

About Judy Ornelas Sisneros
I am a native Californian, born and raised in Bakersfield and eventually escaping to San Jose then San Francisco where I spent every free moment in punk and post-punk culture spaces before heading to LA permanently in 1989. I have also spent major time as an AIDS and queer street activist, which today along with my passion for punk/alternative music still informs my personal and social life. I love photography, film and playing punk/post-punk stuff on the bass. My LA Beat contributions are usually photos that give a glimpse into the vibrant art and music scene that makes Los Angeles such an amazing city to live in today.
