Transgender Woman Murdered in Harlem Attack

Vaughn Nettles, 21, a transgender woman died Thursday after being assaulted by a group of men in Harlem. Her death was ruled a homicide and is now being investigated as a hate crime. Nettles and her friend, who is a transgender woman, met with a group of men on Aug. 17. The two groups began fighting when the men realized Nettles and her friend were transgender.
