SPRINGFIELD, Ohio

High school students honored a slain classmate at their school prom.

Students signed a photo of Jeff Wellington and a special song was played in his honor at the Springfield High School prom on Saturday night. The Springfield News-Sun reports that Wellington’s prom date also accepted an honorary crown on his behalf.

Police say the 17-year-old football player was fatally shot April 20 while trying to play the role of peacemaker.

Police said Wellington was visiting friends at an apartment complex when an argument broke out between one of Wellington’s friends and another youth.

Police are seeking a 17-year-old suspect.
