Middle-School Child Commits Suicide

Tragedy struck a Southgate school Thursday.  An eighth grade student committed suicide inside a middle school. Davidson Middle School was locked down Thursday morning and parents were asked to come and pick up their children.

Police haven't released many details, but say the male student left a suicide note behind.  The school's superintendent said: "We went into immediate lockdown, kept the kids in the classroom safe while the authorities were dealing with the situation. From what I understand, he's a very good student, somewhat popular. Talking to the staff in the building, he had never gone to anybody with any issues or problems or anything like that."

School officials say they are looking into how the student was able to get a gun inside the building.
