An elementary school student killed himself while in his distance learning class late Wednesday morning, the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office confirmed.
Deputies confirm the 11-year-old boy was in his Zoom class with his microphone and camera off when he took his own life. His sister, who was distance learning in another room, found him and alerted a neighbor and her teacher, who helped call authorities.
The sheriff’s office said deputies responded to the 300 block of Sterling Street in the community of Woodbridge just after 11 a.m. to investigate a reported shooting. At the scene, a young boy with a head injury was found. The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital with his parents by his side. He later died from his injuries.
Detectives have since responded to the scene and are now investigating.
