The community vigil for Brisenia Flores is scheduled at 4:30 p.m. at Snohomish County's flag pavilion, at 3000 Rockefeller Ave., Everett.
Brisenia was shot to death, along with her father, 29-year-old Raul Flores, on May 30, 2009. Brisenia's mother, Gina Gonzalez, was shot but survived after a gun battle with the attackers.
Shawna Forde, formerly of Everett, and Jason Bush, also from Washington, were convicted in the case and are on Arizona's death row. An Arizona man, Albert Gaxiola, received a life sentence. Testimony at their trials revealed Forde led the attack on Brisenia's family as part of a plan to fund her Minutemen American Defense group through robbery. Forde founded the organization in Everett and left here in early 2009 after a series of violent incidents.
Following the vigil, a reception and short workshop are planned.
