A Facebook page in honor of Deandre Felton has now garnered over 2,500 follows as police continue the investigation into Felton's death Friday.

Multiple messages, photos and codolences have accumulated on a Facebook page dedicated to Deandre Felton, the 15-year-old Meriden teen who was fatally stabbed just outside Midstate Medical Center last Friday.

Meriden police continue to reportedly investigate the crime that occured on Kensington Avenue around 9:30 p.m. Two teenagers were reportedly stabbed, one of them later identified as Felton.

Felton was rushed to the nearby hospital but died from his injuries, police said. Since his death, the community held a vigil at a city park, and a Facebook page has sprung up in Felton's memory. As of Monday evening, it had 2,556 followers.

The Record Journal newspaper identified the second victim as an eighth grade student from Washington Middle School.

The newspaper also reported that police were talking to a person of interest in the stabbing. A Meriden detective reached for comment Monday evening said he could not confirm this information.

The Meriden Police Department is asking anyone who may have any information regarding this incident to contact Detective Martin Eisner at (203) 630-6260.

A punk is a punk ANY WAY YOU LOOK AT IT! Stop protecting these gangs, They went out to harm people and got what they deserved! Sometimes God uses justice in a different way, If it were your face being smashed in you would have a different opinion. You don`t want your children to die? Neither do the people they were trying to kill? Mother`s should care enough to teach their children right from wrong, instead of making excuses for their bad behavior!
