Prayer Service Held for Hate Crime Torn Community NE PA

Prayer Service Held to Unite Torn Community
SHENANDOAH, SCHUYLKILL COUNTY- People in Schuylkill County remembered a hate crime victim Sunday afternoon. A group of teenagers beat Luis Ramirez to death in Shenandoah last month. He was a 25-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico.

Witnesses say the teens beat him while yelling racial slurs. The kids have been charged and now the community is divided. That's why some of the victim's friends and family hosted this prayer service.
