An eighth-grade student at Davidson Middle School in Southgate committed suicide in the building Thursday morning.
Superintendent William Grusecki said another student found the boy in bathroom. He had died from a gunshot wound.
Grusecki said the school was put on lock down while emergency crews responded.
Students were put in the gym and auditorium and parents were called to come pick up their students at about 9 a.m. The school also arranged for transportation for students to get home.
"I feel so horrible for the family of the child. I can't even imagine," said parent Sherri Zacharski
Grusecki said out of respect for the family, the boy's name wouldn't be released. But he said the boy was known as a good student, somewhat popular and had never gone to school officials with any problems he was experiencing.
School was canceled for the day Thursday and Friday. Counselors are being provided for the community, some coming from surrounding districts.
