The son of murder victim Guillermo "Memo" Carmona-Perez had first dibs on toys Saturday when the Los Angeles Police Department Pacific Division's Annual Winter Wonderland Xmas Toy Giveaway opened shop Saturday at 10 a.m.

The annual holiday event, which includes free photos with Santa Claus, food and drinks, face painting and other fun activities, goes until 3 p.m. Saturday at LAPD's Pacific Division, 12312 Culver Blvd. and is free to the public.

Characters from the movie "Despicable Me 2" are also at the festivities.

"Thanks to the generosity of corporate sponsors, businesses, neighborhood councils and community organizations we can provide an unforgettable experience," said Monica Harmon, LAPD Pacific Division Community Police Advisory Board Member and event organizer.  

Police officers, civilian staff and loads of volunteers join together to bring the joy of the holidays to others. Community members donated toys and cash to make the event happen. 

Carmona-Perez died Nov. 18 from a stab wound suffered shortly after he left work around midnight. The 24-year-old father's murder remains a mystery. The City of Los Angeles has issued a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of his killer(s).
