Investigators with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office say a student at Lake Minneola High School died Tuesday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The boy reportedly shot himself in the bus drop off line at the school. Students found the body while conducting a fire drill shortly after 8 a.m.
The school was placed on lock down immediately after the shooting.
Investigators later confirmed the boy died from his injuries.
Grief counselors are expected at the Minneola campus later today.
The Lake County School District says worried parents will be reunited with their students at nearby Minneola Charter Elementary School.
