Services are set for a Miamisburg teenager shot to death in a home invasion last month.
The family of Noah Kinser will receive friends Tuesday from 2 to 7 p.m. at Newcomer South Chapel, 3940 Kettering Blvd., Kettering, where a funeral service will take place after the visitation at 7 p.m., according to his obituary.
Interment will be on Wednesday at 2 p.m. at Highland Memorial Cemetery.
Kinser, an 18-year-old senior at Miamisburg High School, was killed Dec. 30 during a targeted home invasion on North First Street, according to authorities. His death has been ruled a homicide.
Miamisburg schools will have grief counselors at the school’s campus on Monday, the first day back for students.
“There’s family, there’s friends, there’s knowledge of him, everyone is certainly missing him at this time and there will be a void there that we have to try to work through,” said Miamisburg Superintendent David Vail.
Police said they are seeking two male suspects who fled the scene in a dark sedan after the shooting, which was reported just before 10 p.m.
“He would help anyone with no hesitation,” according to his obituary. “Noah was an avid animal lover who loved his cats. He also enjoyed being with his friends listening to music and playing video games.”
He worked for TJ Chumps in Miamisburg, according to his obituary. Family and friends gathered Sunday night for a candlelight vigil and balloon release at Riverfront Park.
He is survived by mom, Samantha (Eddie Barton) Kinser; dad, Benjamin Kinser, Jr.; brother, Michael Kinser; grandmother, Pat (Virgil) Samborsky; grandfather, Jerry (Diana) Mitchell; grandmother, Mary Kinser, and many other relatives.
Memorial donations may be His Hope Teen Challenge, PO Box 421, Miamisburg, OH 45343.
