    "It's been a couple years, but it still feels like yesterday to me," mother Chareda Carter said Thursday. "It's a cut I don't think I'll ever be able to heal from."

    Ivey was shot to death on June 9, 2016 at about 4:30 a.m. as he sat in his vehicle in the parking lot of his apartment complex in the 800 block of El Repetto Drive in Monterey Park.
