Students grieve after Fairfield teen's murder

Students from Fairfield to Wilton are mourning a Fairfield teen found dead in his home last week.

While police still investigate the death of 17-year-old Kyle Schneider, his friends and classmates are trying to keep his spirit alive.

Schneider attended Fairfield Warde High School. Some of his friends created a make-shift memorial at what was his unofficial parking spot on campus.

?He had so much more to do, he had so many more lives to touch,? says classmate Kelsey Lindgren.

Students in Wilton are also remembering Schneider, who used to attend a school there.

?He's the funniest person I know, he always lived life to the fullest,? says Danny McEneaney.

Schneider was found fatally shot Thursday inside the home he shared with his father. Police say someone murdered the teen and are hoping his friends can help with any information.

Meanwhile, grief counselors are on hand at Fairfield Warde High School for students.
