A town hall meeting is scheduled this weekend for residents of Lansing's Genesee neighborhood.

It's to address concerns people may have, following the brutal attack and murder of community activist Ruth Hallman.

She was the president of the Genesee Neighborhood Association, and fought to keep crime and drugs out of the neighborhood.

Police are still investigating her death.

The town hall meeting will be held Sunday at 2 o'clock at the Black Child and Family Institute on West Genesee Street.

Mayor Virge Bernero and Lansing police chief Mark Alley are expected to be there. Only residents of the Genesee neighborhood are allowed to attend.

Bernero's office says the meeting will give residents a chance to express their concerns and fears about the neighborhood.
