Street vendors gather in Long Beach to honor one of their own, who was killed in Gardena Robbery



As attacks on street vendors grow in prominence, one organization is working to create a safe space.

The Tianguis Market Foundation was joined by more than 200 vendors in Long Beach on Sunday to memorialize 34-year-old Severino Gutierrez Valez, known to many as “Elias the Fruit Vendor,” who was fatally shot in a robbery in Gardena on Aug. 5.
