HOUSTON - It's the end of Ramadan and for the Muslim community that means it's time to celebrate after a month of fasting and praying.

Dozens of worshipers from across the Bayou City gathered at NRG arena as leaders spoke about the importance of peace, a timely subject considering the recent shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

While investigators are still trying to figure out why the suspected shooter, Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, opened fire at two military facilities, killing four marines, those who practice the Islamic faith say he doesn't represent who they are.

"These are criminals, these are terrorists, they don't belong in the society, they have nothing to do with us, we have nothing to do with them," said Khan. "We will not allow them to represent the false religion which they are practicing."
