A vigil will be held next week for the transgender man who was beat to death in a homeless encampment in Burlington, Vermont, last month.

According to the Pride Center of Vermont, the vigil for Amos Beede will be held on June 8 at 6 p.m. at Perkins Pier.

Beede was attacked on May 23 and died on May 28 of complications from blunt force trauma to his brain. Police initially said they were investigating whether Beede's gender identity contributed to his death, but there was no mention of that Thursday.

Four people were arrested in connection with his death in San Diego, California, early Friday morning.

The suspects in his killing are identified as Erik Averill, Jordon Paul, Myia Barber and Allison Gee.

A GoFundMe page has been set up on behalf of Beede to help pay for the funeral and related expenses.
