RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - Friends and family gathered at the intersection of Van Buren and LaCrosse Streets to honor the memory of Neveah Brave Heart, who was killed in Friday’s hit-and-run crash.

Dozens gathered in a nearby parking lot with lit candles, then proceeded to march to the intersection.

The gathered mourners took part in a traditional Lakota prayer accompanied by a drum circle.

People we spoke with at the event say they pray for justice for Neveah, and hope the culprit is held responsible.
