A rally was held Saturday in honor of a murdered Brooklyn teenager days after an arrest in the decade-long cold case.
Community members, elected officials and activists gathered in Crown Heights Saturday for the Justice Rally and March for Chanel Petro-Nixon.
The 16-year-old was killed in June of 2006.
Prosecutors say she was found strangled and stuffed inside a garbage bag on Kingston Avenue.
NY1's own Errol Louis spoke at the event and said it's important for the community to stay united in times of tragedy.
"Cause what holds this community together is faith and friendship and family," Louis said. "And that's really all we have."
"And we've got to stand together because when you do harm against one of us in the community you do harm to all of us and that's why we're going to stand together and march in memory of her," said Public Advocate Letitia James.
Longtime suspect Veron Primus was indicted in the case earlier this week.
The 29-year-old is currently in custody in the Caribbean for allegedly killing another woman.
It's unclear when Primus will be extradited to the U.S.
