This morning school violence happened in my small neighborhood. The high school is only three blocks away from me. A high school girl was killed by a classmate because she refused to go to the junior prom with him tonight.
He has now been formally charged with murder.
The prom has been cancelled and all the kids are holding a candlelight vigil for her on Walnut Beach just a few feet away from me. The parents of the girl are asking everyone who plans on attending the vigil to wear their formal prom outfits. The media circus is covering the whole thing.
For the first time I can remember, my whole neighborhood is eerily quiet. Student killed at Jonathan Law High School in Milford | WTNH
