UPDATE: Suspect Identified in Shooting Death of Springfield HS Student

SPRINGFIELD -- Police have named 17-year-old Tyrin Lemond Hawkins as the suspect in the fatal shooting of Jeff Wellington.


Friends Remember Springfield HS Student Killed in Shooting

SPRINGFIELD-- The Springfield community is grieving after a star football player was shot and killed over the holiday weekend.

At least 200 family and friends of Jeff Wellington showed up on the football field for a candlelight vigil Sunday night. Many said their tearful final goodbyes to the football star.
   
Friends say Jeff would go out of his way to put a smile on people's faces, and it was his willingness to help others that possibly took his life.
   
The 17-year-old was killed Easter morning, just after 2:00 A.M. on Limestone Avenue. Those who knew him say he was trying to breakup a fight outside of an apartment complex when he was shot and killed.
   
Friends of the teen say Springfield High will not be the same without him.
   
Right now, police are not saying much about the investigation. They are only saying that they think the shooter was also a teenager.
   
This morning, Springfield High School will have members of the crisis team available to talk to students.



SPRINGFIELD--Springfield High School students mourning the loss of a friend Sunday night.

At least 200 people showed up to remember the star football player 17-year old Jeff Wellington.

"It hasn't hit me fully," said Jessica McDaniel, a classmate of Wellington.

People we talked with at the vigil say Wellington was a peacemaker and on Easter morning was trying to prevent a fight.

"Just the fact he was trying to prevent something and what he was trying to prevent could have been prevented," she said.

Superintendent of Springfield City Schools Dr. David Estrop said the district will have a crisis intervention team in place Monday morning for students, staff and parents.

Police have not named a suspect in the shooting.

They are expected to release more information Monday morning.


Earlier Coverage:

SPRINGFIELD--Police say the shooting happened at an apartment complex in the 2300 block of Limestone Street just before 3 AM Sunday.

Officers are releasing little information, but they do say 17-year old Jeff Wellington was shot by another teen.

Some neighbors tell us they woke up when they heard the gunshot.

Wellington was a junior at Springfield High School.  He was a star football player and was already catching the eye of colleges like the Ohio State University and University of Michigan.

A crisis team will be available at Springfield High School Monday to help grieving students and staff.
