Teen, 16, kills himself at Texas high school



Published: Wed, October 18, 2006 @ 12:00 a.m.



HOUSTON (AP) -- A 16-year-old shot and killed himself at a suburban high school Tuesday, prompting a temporary lockdown at the school.

The sophomore went to a secluded area next to the Seven Lakes High School's cafeteria courtyard around noon and shot himself, said Steve Stanford, a Katy Independent School District spokesman.

The boy left a note, Stanford said. Officials would not release its contents.

A student who witnessed the shooting ran to a school nurse for help, and the nurse and an assistant principal called 911. A helicopter transported the boy to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he later died.
