"RIP Nathaniel Brown," said one. "May your soul rest in peace."
One neighbour who lives close to the scene was woken by screams in the middle of the night.
"It was around 2.30am and I heard these shouts and screams," said the woman, who did not want to be named. "It started to get louder and louder and when I got up to look out about 3.15am I saw all these people running away from the house. I went into a bit of shock then about what happened. I have been up since and haven't slept. It's just awful what's happened."
Neighbour Tyrone Simpson said people were stunned.
"This was a young kid. It's very sad. I've have young kids of my own and this boy was only 16. It's terrible," he said.
