Salisbury Murder Prompts Community Unity

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A community is trying to move forward after the murder of Jose Andres Aguilera.  The first step: to attack the stigma of talking about race.

"We are not looking to be divided but to unite and identify and find solutions," said Jackie Lisjuan, president of Rayo de Luz.    

On October 28th, the 23-year-old father was killed during an armed robbery at his Margaret Street home.  Several arrests have been made, but now, for community members, it's time to talk about change.

"What had happened recently between two young groups involving Hispanic and African American, we want to let the community know that this has not divided us, this is bringing us together," said Lisjuan.

"For those that dont speak English, per se, there are resources," said Luisa Perdomo of Salisbury. "There are people who are willing to give service the interpretation to for them to speak out."

By hosting both communities at the Richard Hazel Youth Center, Lisjuan said she hopes to start the process, one step at a time.
