Ten-year-old Kane Morris was found dead in Union Street, Coupar Angus, around 2.30am on Sunday.
An eight-year-old girl is fighting for her life in hospital following the incident.
Police said a 37-year-old man had been arrested.
Floral tributes and teddy bears were left near Kane's home on Monday morning.
Along with a bunch of roses and lilies, a handwritten note read: "To Kane. I will remember you and I miss you."
Friends, family and other members of the community have also paid tribute on social media.
One wrote: "The town is very subdued today. What has happened is shocking. Nobody can take it in."
Another added: "We are just praying the girl makes it."
Police remained at the house on Monday morning as forensic officers scoured the scene.
Chief Inspector Ian Scott, of Police Scotland, said: "At this time, our thoughts are very much with the family and friends of the young boy who has died in this incident and with the young girl who remains in a serious condition in hospital.
"I can confirm that a 37-year-old man has been arrested in connection with this incident.
"Enquiries are ongoing however I believe this to have been an isolated and contained incident with no threat to the wider public.
"There will be a police presence at the scene for some time while we undertake our investigation and I would like to thank the local community for their patience whilst we carry out our work.
"There will be additional patrols by local community based officers in Coupar Angus to help provide some reassurance to the community.
"If anyone heard or saw anything in the Union Street area, who hasn't already spoken with officers, I would ask that they call Police Scotland on 101 (ref 0611 of 11 Nov) with details."
