In Prince George's County, Central High School students paid tribute to their fallen classmate Marckel Ross, who was shot this week while walking to his Capitol Heights school.

Students will observe a moment of silence today at 2 p.m., before releasing balloons in the color of light-blue in remembrance of Ross, the 18-year-old junior who was described by many as amiable and athletic.

Students were also permitted to dress out of uniform today and wear light-blue shirts. According to the late teenager's mother, that was one of his favorite colors.

Ross was shot and killed while walking to school along Old Central Avenue on Tuesday morning. As of this afternoon, police haven't revealed a suspect or a motive for the murder.
