A memorial event for Kristopher Mickell, 15, has been planned by his friends and teachers at Maricopa Unified School District.

In what is planned as a private event Wednesday, after the final bell Wednesday at Maricopa High School (around 12:30 p.m.) students will walk from MHS down Honeycutt Avenue to Maricopa Wells Middle School, where Kris had been a student. There will be a balloon release at the MWMS campus.

Participants are asked to wear red and bring black and gray balloons.

Kris was living in Phoenix when he was stabbed to death Tuesday. A suspect was arrested Wednesday.
