Nearly 70 people were in attendance just after 6 tonight for a candlelight vigil for Wen Hui Ruan, the 68-year-old resident who died following an attack here at 745 E. Sixth St. last week.
City Councilmember Rosie Mendez's office organized the event to give his "family and the community a chance to come together to remember his life and to take a stand against violence in the neighborhood."
Police arrested 20-year-old Jamie Pugh early last Tuesday morning. He has been charged with second-degree murder, robbery and assault.
