Iman shooting suspect

Suspect remains on the loose after Saturday’s murder of a Muslim Iman and his assistant

Scores of people are using the hashtag #IllWalkWithYou in sympathy for a New York City Muslim religious leader and his associate who were gunned down Saturday just blocks away from their mosque.
Imam Maulama Akonjee, 55, and his assistant Thara Uddin, 64, were shot in the back of the head in Ozone Park.
People in the Muslim community suspect both were victims of a hate crime. In response, many have taken up the hashtag to signify they will walk with Muslims to their Mosque so they can worship in peace and without fear.
