BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Scores of people attended a Christmas night vigil for a pizza delivery man whose killing has prompted an outpouring of support in Birmingham.

About 200 people gathered and lit candles outside a Domino’s pizza store Thursday night for 63-year-old Najeh Masaeid.

Daughter Jordan Hosey released a lighted lantern into the sky in her father’s memory. And supporters sang “Silent Night” and other songs.

Masaeid was found dead Sunday night while making a pizza delivery at an apartment complex.

Police haven’t made an arrest, but they say the killing may be connected to an attack that occurred on another delivery person in the same complex last month.

Donors have contributed more than $78,000 to a fund set up to help Masaeid’s family since the slaying.
