Hundreds gather to remember slain Roxborough High student

    As police continue to investigate the murder of Rashawn Anderson, hundreds of his family members and friends gathered yesterday to remember the high school senior.

    Anderson was gunned down near his home Feb. 7 in what police think is an incident related to ongoing tension between residents of Anderson’s Abbotsford housing complex and the nearby Allegheny neighborhood.

    Megan Pinto and Maz Matza have the full story from the funeral.
