Missoula, Montana (CNN) People are hanging balloons in honor of a German exchange student killed in Missoula, Montana.

Diren Dede was just 17 years old.

Prosecutors say Markus Kaarma caught the teenager trespassing in his garage early Sunday morning and shot him.

Neighbors say the circumstances are tragic.

"Everyone's feeling... just feeling really badly for the host family and the German family and what they're going through right now. Our hearts reach out to them," says neighbor Suzanne Klise.

Kaarma is charged with deliberate homicide.
