Students at Thurgood Marshall mourn the slaying of Andy Zeng

Friends of the slain teen have begun the healing process, with at least two Facebook pages (here and here) and several Tumblr and Twitter posts being dedicated to the young man.

Whether this tragic event was another gangland murder or something that simply went terribly and fatally wrong (and then somehow got even worse), one thing is for certain - that there is yet another young man who has been denied the opportunity to fulfill his potential.

From the SF Examiner,
Andy Zeng
Slain 16-year-old sophomore Andy Zeng was a “jolly” and beloved student at Thurgood Marshall Academic High School who loved video games, rarely missed class and was not in a gang, the school principal and Zeng's peers said Tuesday.

Stunned students at the school are mourning Zeng’s death this week. On Sunday, the sophomore’s body was found in a home in the Silver Terrace neighborhood. He did not live in the home. Police say the teen was murdered.

Four teenagers have been arrested and a fifth teen was being sought in connection with the killing. Police were called to the two-story house in the 2100 block of Quesada Avenue around 4:30 a.m. Sunday.
