The Southeast Asian community will hold a candlelight vigil for Toua Xiong, the murdered Pizza Hut delivery man, on Friday, August 11th starting at 8:30pm. The vigil will begin at the Pizza Hut on the corner of West Broadway and Girard Ave N. in Minneapolis.
Toua was a 20 year old Hmong resident. He was saving money to go to college and buy a car, so he was using his sister's car to deliver the pizza. He was thinking about going to St. Thomas or Concordia and wanted to be in finance-management.
A memorial fund has been set up to help the family pay for funeral expenses.
