East Lansdowne shooting: Vigil held for family killed as community grieves

A community is coming together to mourn the family killed in an East Lansdowne shooting and house fire.

The service featured a number of prayers, speeches from Natalya's, Nakayla's and Xavier's teachers, remarks from local officials-- and even a dance tribute by the dance company Nakayla danced for... CCSD dance company.

"It was just really nice to show how she will always be with us as we continue the competition season and how she will always dance with us and be in our hearts." said Cara Jaskelewicz, Dancer with CCSD.

Authorities suspect the Le family was killed by Xuong's brother, Cahn Le, who also shot and wounded two police officers.

Law enforcement say their assumption is that the family was shot and then a fire was set.

The family's remains were recovered from the ashes. Cahn Le also died.

Both officers have been treated and released.
