A large clump of balloons flew over the hundreds of people gathered Monday night at a vigil to mourn the 15-year-old who was stabbed to death, allegedly by another student, at Harding High School last week.
Devin Denelle Edward Scott was on his first day as a student at the St. Paul high school when he was killed, according to his uncle, who was at the vigil and declined to give his name but said his nephew went by the nickname "Cheese." Speakers at the vigil outside the school said they hope the community can work to prevent tragedies like this in the future, but they also acknowledged it has shaken them.
"This tragedy will fully change the trajectory of this community, and I just pray and hope the ripple effect is positive and brings us peace," the school's student body president, Hawti Boranto, said to the crowd.
