A funeral prayer service for Nabra Hassanen, the Muslim teen who was attacked and killed early Sunday near a Virginia mosque, will be held Wednesday.
Police say a man fatally beat her with a bat during a weekend road-rage incident, and that it appears her attack was not a hate crime.
Hassanen, 17, died of blunt-force trauma to the head and neck, according to the medical examiner’s office.
Her funeral prayer service will be held at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society Center in Sterling, Virginia, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
On Tuesday, hundreds attended a “Justice for Nabra” vigil in Washington’s DuPont Circle, reported CNN affiliate WJLA.
The brutal killing of Hassanen has shaken the local Muslim community — especially as she was attacked hours before a man drove a van into a crowd of worshipers at a mosque in London. It prompted CAIR to issue a security alert calling for Muslim communities to step up security for Ramadan-related activities.
