Coworkers of a Cleveland man who was shot and killed last week are pitching in to help pay for his funeral.

The owners of Ohio City Burrito on W. 25th Street in Cleveland donated a day’s worth of sales to the family of 20-year-old Kevin King.

He worked at the restaurant for about a year before he was shot and killed August 23 near E. 123rd St. and Phillips Avenue.

In addition to the sales donation, some coworkers have even pooled their tips and customers have also given at least $450 to help his family with funeral costs.

“He was a part of our family. We’re a small business here. We only have 15 employees, so we’re a small business and we ourselves as a family,” Ohio City Burrito co-owner Mikki Pizzuli said.

Cleveland Police said a 15-year-old boy was also injured in that shooting, but survived. They have not announced any charges in the case.
