My son is sophmore at Fairfield Warde High and shared a class with Kyle..he had nothing but wonderful things to say about him. My condolences go out to Kyle's Family & Friends..my God give you strength during this very difficult time.

I can't wait to see justice done for Kyle; it won't bring him back but hopefully will bring some much need closure.

Ooooh, it happened in Fairfield and everyone is so sad and full of condolences. If it happened in New Haven, we would be reading hate mail on how they should not be out at a certain time, or they should stay in school, or the parents need to be more involved, or it was probably a drug deal gone bad, or its the ghetto and that should happen everyday!

That's because most people on the forum only think White kids are worth anything.

WhiteSavage - Try not to generalize about New Haven, please. Yes, there are bad areas of the city that sadly sour the image of the entire town. But as a New Haven resident in one of the nice parts of the city, I hate the assumption that the entire town is the ghetto. Where I live there are tree lined streets, young families at the park or taking a walk, kids playing outside, a great multi-cultural school with a highly involved PTA, a neighborhood just like anywhere else.

Ok, it's sad to see anyone's life taken by any violence, regardless if it's in the suburbia or the inner city. However, not to sound sadistic, but I hope this investigation uncovers some sad truth that this young man was caught in a tangled web with the wrong crowd and essentially hid this from all his loved ones. The reason I say this, is because we will have much larger issue to worry about if this was some sort of random act of violence...that means there is some wacko or group of wackos that are on the loose who will strike again. (i.e. The Beltway Sniper(s) of a few years ago.) I hope the authorities are able to resolve this case quickly, not only for the victim's family and friends, but also concerned citizens like myself.

I fully concur with your comments. I was not generalizing about New Haven, but only pointing out how "others" on this Forum do just that everyday.

remember when maliq jones was killed by east haven police and the big race thing that came out of it? as it turned out, jones wasnt the "angel" his mother claimed he was. not that it has anything to do with this kid from fairfield, but some people just rush to judgement so quickly without knowing the whole truth. theres something not right with this story. i feel bad for his parents having to go thru this, but the truth will come out and then i will judge if this was a tragedy or not

You said you will judge when the truth comes out? This was a young life taken by violence since when is a young man's death not a tragedy? I dont care where you live, what color you are or how much money you make, no one deserves to die like that.

You are a heartless excuse of human being.

To the Schneider family God Bless and stay strong. As a family member of another Fairfield teen killed by a drunk driver in fairfield 26 years ago, your community and family will help you get through this difficult and heartbreaking time. You are in my prayers.

You know you're right about the public reactions (generally speaking) but part of that should be blamed on the media who are so quick to report when it happens in a town like Fairfield but not so much in the inner city. However, a 17 year old being shot to death is a tragedy no matter what, that kid is somebody's child, grandchild, brother, sister, niece or nephew regardless of geography.
My heart goes out to the family of this poor boy and to all of those others families who have lost someone in a senseless tragedy. And by 'senseless' I mean even those that are drug related or whatever. Death is forever and the grief and emptiness for those left behind may never make sense.

By the end of the week they will have someone charged with this murder. They already have leads. They just need to verify more proof before getting warrants and making an arrest or more then one arrest. I hope it helps the family get closure. However, I am sure it will not ever make sense or be understandable. God Bless and keep your heads up... he is with God now and he will help watch over you all.

These comments are so incredibly stupid. This is a tragedy no matter what City/Town. A person has died. Look at the statistics you idiots. Crimes of this kind are much more common in major cities like New Haven. It is unusual for this to happen in any suburban town, not just Fairfield. Of course, when it is a rare occurrence, people want to know why.

A young man is dead. Nobody knows why yet. Has nothing to do with color or what he may have been involved with. He's gone and a family is grieving. Use your head and thank God that it is not a friend/relative of yours.

Who the hell cares where he's from, what color he was, or what he was into? We don't know why he died, what it was related to, or who killed him. But keep your rude comments to yourself. His family, our school, our town, and countless others have been crushed by this incident. Fairfield has a right to mourn this tragedy. I agree that it's a shame that people don't always have the same reaction that Fairfield’s having to the death of others, but don't bash us for grieving over the death of a well loved kid.

I'm not sure who you are calling an idiot, but I don't think anyone would disagree that it is a tragedy. Yes, it is more common to hear about murders in the city than in the suburbs but it should never get to the point where killing someone is so commonplace that it is almost expected. When did we (society) get so immune to the feelings of sadness and shock that we only respond to the 'news' of a teenager being killed if it happens in some place unexpected? I don't care WHERE it happens, if a person's life is taken away, especially this young, I want to know WHY. Is it really less 'newsworthy' if it happens in the city than if it happens in someplace less 'common' like the suburbs? When did the value of a child's life become affected by where their parents decided to raise them? Sorry if I sound like an 'idiot' with my 'stupid' comments. This is tragic no matter where the kid is from.

heartless? sure, why not. you dont even know me and judge me by a comment i make. a year ago, my best friend was found dead in a hotel room of a drug overdose. he was 33, had a 7 year old daughter and a wife batteling breast cancer. and he was white. not one ounce of news coverage. and the guy who he met at that hotel to get his drugs from, is running free and living and enjoying life. now that is a tragedy. should i thank god he took a friend away even though he had his deamons?
