    Family and friends will hold a funeral Thursday morning for a Prince George's County teen killed while walking to school.

    High school junior Marckel Ross, 18, was shot to death Sept. 11 on his way to Central High School in District Heights. The school's principal spoke highly of Ross, who was in the modeling club, on the track team and in ROTC.

    Police still don't have any information about a suspect, and are asking the public for help in solving this crime.
