Barker's L.A. Store a Gathering Spot for Well-Wishers, Mourners

The staff at Travis Barker's Los Angeles boutique Fast Life are mourning one of their own and wishing only the best for another.

Barker's friend Chris "Lil' Chris" Baker, who managed the store, was one of four killed in the South Carolina Learjet crash that left the former Blink 182 drummer and DJ AM severely injured. Both are in critical yet stable condition at the Joseph Still Burn Center in Augusta, Ga.

E! News spotted concerned-looking supporters gathering at Fast Life, which features pop-punk gear for men and women, at around 1 p.m. A motorcycle adorned with yellow flower arrangements and a T-shirt was placed outside the store.

While staffers declined to comment on last night’s events, sources told us the vibe within the boutique was shocked and somber.

“There’s no music on, people are sitting or standing quietly," one insider said. "The staff is shuffling stock around the floor."
