Slain High School Senior Honored Tuesday

An Elder High School student murdered in West Price Hill Sunday was honored Tuesday morning with a prayer service.

Hundreds of Maurice Kennedy's  Elder classmates and teachers filled "The Pit," around 8 a.m. this morning to remember the peace keeping senior. Witnesses say Kennedy, 17, was shot while trying to break up a gang scuffle in West Price Hill Sunday night. Police are still looking for the gunman.

Friends of Kennedy left flowers outside a Glenway Avenue business where his body was found.

Elder classmates are gathering donations for Kennedy's funeral through an account at Fifth Third bank. Monday night, some of Kennedy's friends gathered at a candlelight vigil where they prayed for their friend.
