BOULDER, Colo. (KDVR) — The youngest victim in the King Soopers shooting was laid to rest on Thursday in a private memorial service.

The service for Denny Stong was held at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, according to the Boulder Police Department.

“Today the Stong family laid Denny to rest after a private memorial service was held at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport. The family was surrounded by those who knew and loved Denny. In fact, so many people wanted to honor his life that the attendees spilled out into another room,” shared the Boulder Police Department on Twitter.
