A memorial planned for a man killed inside a Charlottesville restaurant has been postponed.
Last weekend 30-year-old Antonio Lamar Washington died from what police described as chest injuries in the city's first homicide of the year. He was found inside the Al Hamraa restaurant at the IX complex.
A memorial tree planting at that property was scheduled for Sunday. Organizers tell NBC29 it has been postponed at the family's request.
Police have not said if they have a suspect in Washington's death.
