Boy dead after apparent suicide outside UT school
School district officials say a student has died after an apparent suicide attempt outside a Taylorsville junior high.
Granite School District Spokesman Ben Horsley tells The Salt Lake Tribune the boy shot himself on a walkway in front of students and parents after classes ended at Bennion Junior High on Thursday.
School officials later announced on their Facebook page that the student had died.
The district says it is providing crisis counselors to talk with students and families in the wake of the death.
