RICHMOND -- Two events are lined up to mourn the killing of a young man and to raise money for his funeral.
Lincoln Plair, 21, was shot several times while mowing lawns in the 600 block of Sixth Street about 3:30 p.m. Monday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Staff at Pogo Park, a nonprofit organization dedicated to rebuilding local parks and where Plair volunteered for the past year, said on Thursday that mourners will gather at Eighth and Elm streets at 6:30 p.m. Friday for a candlelight vigil and a walk to the site where Plair was slain.
On Saturday, Pogo Park staff and family members will host a community carwash at Eighth and Elm Streets from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to raise funds for Plair's funeral. Police will help provide traffic coordination and spread the word, Richmond police Capt. Mark Gagan said.
"The gesture of hosting a carwash is as much about beginning the healing process for the residents of the Iron Triangle as it is to financially support his family," Gagan said.
Police are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Plair's killer.
