Banks County Sheriff Charles Chapman said Friday the male student sustained a “self-inflicted” gunshot room just after 8 a.m. in one of the school bathrooms.

No one else was injured in the incident.

The student was airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta but later died of his injuries.

The school was locked down until 2 p.m. as law enforcement officers swept the school grounds.
