WATCH: Memorial for Heather Heyer, Woman Killed at Charlottesville LIVE STREAM
Heather Heyer, 32, was killed on Saturday when an alt-right extremist drove his car into a group of protesters, injuring 19 other people. The violence in Charlottesville started Friday night when a couple hundred white supremacist marched through the University of Virginia with torches chanting phrases like “White Lives Matter.”
The controversy continued the next day during a “Unite the Right” rally, which soon turned violent with the presence of alt-right extremists. Two officers also died that day, trying to control the crowds.
The memorial is taking place at a theater in Charlottesville and started at 11 a.m. EST. The building is already filled but people can still watch the memorial above.
