An Interfaith Vigil is planned in Cuyahoga Falls on Friday evening for a Muslim teen killed in Virginia.

The gathering in memory of Nabra Hassanen will take place Friday at 6 p.m. at the Islamic Society of Akron and Kent, 152 E. Steels Corners Road, Cuyahoga Falls.

Hassanen, 17, was bludgeoned with a baseball bat early Sunday by a motorist who drove up to about 15 Muslim teenagers as they walked or bicycled along a road, Fairfax County police told the Associated Press.
