DJ Quik’s son, David Blake Jr., was reportedly arr’ested by the Downey Police Department on Thursday on suspicion of mu’rder. Local authorities confirmed the arr’est on Friday.
A press release revealed officers responded to a call Wednesday evening about a fight in progress before receiving a second call about shots being fired. When the cops arrived on the scene, they discovered 33-year-old Julio Cardoza suffering from a single gu’nshot wound. Cardoza later passed away from his injuries at the hospital. Investigators later identified David Blake Jr. as a sus’pect and arr’ested him early Thursday morning.
According to City of Compton records, DJ Quik’s 27-year-old son works as a “council liaison” to Councilmember Isaac Galvan. Early reports speculate that the dece’ased victim may have had ties to the mother of Galvan’s child, whose name is Michelle Cardoza.
Neither Galvan nor DJ Quik has publicly commented on David Blake Jr.’s arr’est. This is the second time a child of DJ Quik’s has faced similar charges as his daughter was charged with ki’lling her son nearly ten years ago.
jai’l records state David Blake Jr.’s bail has been set at $2 million. He is expected back in court on May 31st.
