An Albany second-grader killed crossing a street Saturday was mourned by his school Monday as “a model scholar.”

Qazir Sutherland, 7, was killed after being struck at about 8 p.m. in the 600 block of South Pearl Street, authorities said.

The child entered the road and was hit by a car driven by Cheryl Flowers, 37, of Albany, police said. The investigation remains under investigation.

Sutherland was a student at the Brighter Choice Charter Schools in Albany, the school said Monday. School Director Darryl Williams extended the community’s deepest sympathies to Qazir’s family

“Qazir was a model scholar, always exceeding our expectations in the classroom, and melting our hearts with his undeniable charm in the process,” Williams said in a news release. “We were fortunate to enjoy Qazir’s smile, his growing charisma, and his ability to build positive relationships with his peers and our faculty.”
