KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Dozens of people gathered in the Highland Park Funeral Home Friday morning to pay their respects to December Htoo.

Htoo, 15, was shot and killed at the Maple Hill Laundromat in Kansas City, Kansas, Nov. 17.

The teen’s body was not found until the next morning when a co-worker came to open the store.

Htoo’s family came to the country when he was just 6-years-old, fleeing from violence in Myanmar.

The J.C. Harmon sophomore was a good student and a member of the wrestling team.

Many shared with 41 Action News that Htoo had a positive spirit and an infectious smile.

The teen’s death is still under investigation.
