NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - There's been an outpouring of support for the Cass family in North Little Rock. More than one hundred people came out Thursday night for a vigil in honor of 31-year-old Samantha Cass.
The North Little Rock mother was shot Wednesday heading east bound on McCain Blvd. crossing the JFK Blvd. intersection.
People gathered Thursday night and held a vigil to honor Samantha Cass. The organizer, Jason Benbrook, said he decided to get the word out to the community because someone needed to step up and let the family know the community supports them during this dark time. Donations were collected to offset funeral costs.
"She encompasses everybody. It's not just a single woman that passed away. It could have been you, it could have been me, and it could have been my child. You know? And, when I even think about my kids getting hurt, it chokes me up," said Benbrook.
