Argument with bike rider is what led to Herndon teen's death

Argument with bike rider is what led to Herndon teen's death

Nabra Hassanen, 17, and several of her friends were walking from their local mosque to a nearby IHOP in Sterling early Sunday morning, when a man jumped out of a auto and started swinging at the group with a baseball bat, according to BuzzFeed News.

Monday morning, the Fairfax County Police department tweeted that Torres, who is accused of beating Hassanen to death with a metal baseball bat, was motivated by road rage, not any racism or prejudice against Muslims.

The attack happened early on Sunday after the victim and several friends walking outside the mosque got into a dispute with a motorist in the community of Sterling, the Fairfax County Police Department said in a statement.

Darwin Martinez Torres, 22, has been charged with the murder of 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen.

The teens told police they'd been walking from a McDonalds to the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center for Ramadan prayer when they ended up in a dispute with a man driving in a vehicle, Wright told CNN.

After all, it was Whole Foods' CEO who referred to Jana in a Texas Monthly interview earlier this month as "greedy bastards". Mackey said, according to the transcript . "We just had these big grins on our faces, like, 'These guys are awesome '".

Nabra was abducted in Virginia while returning home from her mosque Sunday, and police later found a body that they believe to be hers.

Martinez Torres was arraigned Monday and denied bail pending a July 19 court appearance. He is originally from El Salvador and had no prior encounters with ICE, a spokeswoman said.

The suspect in Sunday's killing of a South Lakes High School sophomore is under an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer. Police have described it as a road rage incident and say there's no evidence to suggest it was a hate crime. "It appears the suspect became so enraged over this traffic argument that it escalated into deadly violence", Parker said.

At around 3 pm, the remains of a female believed to be the teen victim were found in a pond in Sterling, police said. WUSA9 reports police did recover a bat.

Fairfax County Police Department spokesperson Tawny Wright suggested there was not now evidence the attack was a hate crime.

During the search, police said they stopped a vehicle being driven in a suspicious manner in the area, and took the driver Torres into custody. Her friends reported her missing at around 4 a.m. ET, and police began conducting an extensive search of the area using a police helicopter, K-9 teams and search and rescue teams.

On Monday, Nabra's friends gathered outside her Reston, Virginia, apartment with flowers.

"We are devastated and heartbroken as our community undergoes and processes this traumatic event", the society said in the news release.

"My daughter is dead, and I don't want anyone to feel what I feel, to lose your 17-year-old daughter".

The All Dulles Area Muslim Society (Adams), a local community centre, said that its members came across the teenagers and directed them to their building. "These are the kinds of questions we ask", he said.
