In honor of a young life taken too soon, Enfield High School students released balloons on Sunday to remember 16-year-old Justin Brady, who was killed earlier this week.
Students gathered to honor a young man described as a sweet kid, who had just started his junior year at Enfield High School.
Enfield Police said Brady was stabbed to death in the overnight hours last Sunday, outside of a home on Hoover Lane. Investigators quickly identified the suspect and charged 18-year-old Shyheim "Trey" Adams with first degree manslaughter.
According to court papers, Adams attacked Brady with a knife outside of 15 Hoover Lane, where Brady had gone to fight Adams after the two exchanged messages on Snapchat. Neither lived at the address, but police said two knives were found in the home. One of the knives was used in the stabbing.
Adams is being held on a $750,000 bond and is expected in court again on September 24.
