The teenager who was fatally stabbed on Kensington Avenue in Meriden has been identified as 15-year-old Deandre Felton, according to media reports.
Police have yet to identify Felton as the victim, or the other teen who was stabbed Friday night outside Midstate Medical Hospital in Meriden. Police responded to the incident just after 9:30 p.m. after getting a tip from an anonymous female caller.
By Saturday morning, a Facebook page titled "R.I.P. Deandre Felton" was set up and the page has since garnered over 1,400 members. Multiple people, including what appears to be many of Felton's peers, have left messages on the page expressing condolences for his family's loss.
According to reports on the Facebook page, a candlelight service is scheduled to take place in Washington Park in Meriden between 5 and 5:30 p.m. on Sunday.
The Meriden Police Department is still investigating, and is asking anyone who may have any information regarding this incident to contact Detective Martin Eisner at (203) 630-6260.
