A relatively small group convened in the Bevo neighborhood of St. Louis Monday afternoon to hold a vigil for Zemir Begic, who was attacked and killed Sunday by a group of teenagers wielding hammers.
St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department Chief Sam Dotson was on hand to help reassure the group.
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay had met with the family of Begic earlier.
Again, Slay emphasized that he believes the attack had no connection to the Ferguson protests, nor was it racially motivated.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that police arrested two teen suspects, one Hispanic and one black, on Sunday, and a third suspect turned himself into police Sunday night. Police have one other suspect who has not yet been arrested. The oldest suspect in custody is just 17.
