    Members of the Shelton High School community are remembering a classmate who died tragically after a shooting by doing random acts of kindness in his  memory.

    Kristjan Ndoj, 15, died on Thursday, five days after being shot twice in a driveway on Agawam Trail after riding his bike to a friend’s house.

    Police and ruled the case a homicide. They are investigating, but have not yet made any arrests. 
    The school has brought in counselors to assist students in this time of tragedy.

    Dr. Beth Smith, headmaster of Shelton High School, Tweeted out a photo of the board set up about the project. 

    Smith said in an e-mail that Kristjan was a caring, compassionate young man, who reached out to help others, so some of his classmates thought of having the school community do random acts of kindness in his memory.

    On Friday, the students created a bulletin board that incorporates parts of the Albanian flag colors and symbols, in honor of Kristjan’s nationality. As students do act of kindness, they will write what they have done on a ribbon and it will be attached to the bulletin board. The project will start on Monday.

    Smith says this Sunday they'll have an interfaith gathering for Shelton High School staff, students, and parents.
