Community meeting to address hairdresser's homicide

Danny Vega


The Seattle Police Department is holding a community meeting tomorrow night to discuss the homicide of Seattle hairdresser Danny Vega.

According to a department news release, the meeting will address concerns about Vega’s homicide, as well as the criminal investigation and crime prevention. The meeting is being held in partnership with Vega’s family, as well as the Seattle Police Department Filipino Advisory Council and the Filipino Community of Seattle.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the Filipino Community Center, 5740 Martin Luther King Jr. Way S., in Seattle.

Vega, a 58-year-old South Seattle hairdresser and prominent member of the city’s Filipino community, died Sunday, 12 days after he was robbed and beaten by three teens in Seattle’s Rainier Valley.

Vega’s family has said they believed Vega, who was gay, may have been targeted because of his sexual orientation.
