Come on Boston this is really getting crazy, Lil Soey didnt deserve that. This is a act of ridicule violence, he comes from good parents who work hard to make sure he can have. His dad just dropped him off at the store and nefore he can get good into work he gets this call. What are we to do as parents when our children arent even safe at the bus stop? Rest your soul little angel because justice will be served. OP119...

Soheil Turner pronounced dead

The Herald reports on the death of the student at the Warren Prescott School in Charlestown, in a gang war in which officials say he was not a participant.

The Globe has more on the "quiet, unassuming, sometimes shy boy who loved to play basketball."

This is really sinceless, when you cant feel safe sending your child to the bus stop. This is a terrible tragedy for a family to loss a child at such a young age to something so unexpainable. You will forever be in my heart and prayers. Know that the presence of the lord is here,and with only him will find the strength get through this unbearable time. My hope is for the person who committed this crime to be found and prosecuted.

TO SHANA AND THE TURNER FAMILY YOULL ALWAYS BE IN MY PRAYERS
