DERRY - The person killed in a Derry shooting Wednesday night has been identified by family and friends as a teen from Massachusetts.
Cole Kinney, 17 of Lowell, was the victim, according to friends on scene. His sister has also started a GoFundMe page to help with the teen's burial.
"The amount of pain and suffering my family is going through at this time is unbearable," Tayla Leigh Kinney wrote on the page. "I can't even express the love we have gotten so far. Seeing all the friends my sweet baby brother had and all the people that love him, fills a space that is empty."
According to his sister, his 18th birthday was in September. She also said he "loved boxing, sports and most of all FAMILY."
