This event was originally created by Ahmed Salim.

On Wednesday evening, three men - 23-year-old Mohamedtaha Omar, 20-year-old Adam Mekki, and 17-year-old Muhannad Tairab - were found dead in a house in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

We, as a community, must stand in remembrance and for justice for our three slain brothers. We will be holding a candle light vigil in Centennial Olympic Park, across the street from the CNN center at 6:30pm.
