Girl fatally shoots self in high-school auditorium

(ORLANDO SENTINEL) — A 17-year-old Lake Mary High School student died by suicide at the school early Wednesday, authorities said, prompting a brief lockdown of the campus and leaving students stunned and the campus in mourning.

Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma said the student, an 11th grader, died from a single gunshot in the school’s auditorium building just before 8 a.m. School resource deputies and a nurse responded in “less than a minute” but could not save the girl, he said.
