WASHINGTON, Pa. —

The death of a popular Washington and Jefferson College football player prompted one community to speak out against violence on Saturday.

An anti-violence march was held at 11 a.m. on the W&J campus in the city of Washington.

Police said last month, a group of men beat and killed Tim McNerney, a football player at W&J, and stole his wallet and cell phone.

Police are still searching for McNerney’s killers.
