YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — The Mahoning County Coroner’s Office Tuesday said the 13-year-old boy who shot himself in the cafeteria of the Lowellville school district K-12 building died more than a day after he was taken to the hospital.
A news release from the coroner’s office said investigators were notified about 7:25 p.m. Friday that the boy was deceased.
The boy shot himself at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday in the cafeteria, causing a lockdown of the school. Parents were called to get their children.
School is expected to resume in Lowellville Wednesday.
