A vigil is planned for Quincy Henderson.

Memorial for the Hot Dog Dude

On Tuesday night, Quincy Henderson was shot and killed at 31st and Curtis streets in what police have called "an isolated incident" resulting from an altercation. Other than that, there are few details about the incident -- but there's plenty of talk about the 35-year-old Henderson, who was known as the Hot Dog Dude.

The Hot Dog Dude was a fixture at 26th and Glenarm Place, where he'd peddle hot dogs and homemade chile from a cart positioned between the Glenarm Recreation Center, the Eastside Family Health Center and the Denver Human Services building.

Cars parked in that area Thursday were fliered with notices of a Candlelight Vigil and Rally in support of Henderson, slated from 6-8 p.m. Monday, September 15, in the lot where you could usually find his cart. "Mr. Henderson was brutally gunned down by an unknown assailant," the flier announces. "Please join us in our fight against gun violence."

For information on the rally -- or if you have information on the shooting -- call 303-521-7211. -- Patricia Calhoun
