“Arty was a good kid, kind soul. He would do anything for everyone. All we have are memories of him, we don’t get to see him grow old or have children or get married. We only have memories and I don’t want another family to go through this,” Marlene Barrera, Arty’s mother, said on Thursday. “And that’s why I beg you to share the information because there are murderers on our streets right now.”

Barrera is remembered for his love of BMX riding and skateboarding.
