Newington High School students gathered at the student parking lot Monday night to remeber their classmate, Brendan Horan who was killed in an ATV accident recently. A banner with the name of Newington police officer Ciara McDermott was also hung at the vigil by the students hours after McDermott was shot to death in West Hartford. McDermott was assigned to the high school and known to many of the students. In photo, Amber Bachand, 17, a junior at the high school, places a candle next to the makeshift memorial.
