Tonight at 7:30 - Come Support the Family of Fatima Gordon
Most of you probably remember the tragedy last August of Fatima Gordon, who was the victim of a poorly aimed assassination attempt on a local group of thugs sitting in a parked car. The Q just got word from the victim's aunt that on the anniversary of her birthday, tonight September 4, friends and family are gathering in front of 80 Clarkson to remember her and march to the Pioneer grocery store in silent memory of her fateful trip on August 30, 2012. Her surviving son Chinon will be there, He's pictured. Godspeed, young man.
