Vigil Held In NYC For Slain Gay Man
'The mood was somber. Also, many people who weren't aware of the murder stopped, joined the vigil, and expressed shock and surprise at the fact that a man was murdered, in Greenwich Village of all places, just for his sexual orientation.'
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
A vigil was held for Mark Carson early this morning in Greenwich Village. Mr. Carson was murdered Friday night after being chased from a restaurant and harassed because of his sexual orientation. This is the fifth hate crime against a member of the LGBTQ community in New York City this month. Mr. Carson's killer was apprehended by police and confessed to the murder during interrogation.
