A fundraiser for the family of a 17-year-old Fairfield County student who was fatally stabbed over the weekend has received well over $100,000 in donations.

James McGrath was killed during a fight in front of a home in Shelton at about 11:50 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, police reported.

James, a Shelton resident, was a football and lacrosse player at Fairfield College Preparatory School.

Three other teens were also injured in the incident, and a 16-year-old Milford resident was arrested and charged with murder and three counts of assault, authorities said. 

A GoFundMe set up for the McGrath family has received $109,452, far passing its $15,000 goal, as of Wednesday, May 18.
