An eighth-grader died Tuesday at Nixa Junior High as Christian County Sheriff’s Office investigates.
Early on Tuesday, first responders and ambulances were called to a school located in North St. At 205.
Principal Jared Webster informed the parents of the student about the death and activated the crisis response team.
“The staff and staff of Nixa Junior High regret to inform you that a tragic incident occurred at our university today that resulted in the death of eighth-grader Jake Johnston,” Webster wrote. “We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family.”
Sheriff Brad Cole said the deputies were called to the school at 9 a.m. 35 on “emergency medical care”.
“A school resource deputy was already on campus at the time assistance was requested and immediately began rendering medical aid to an individual identified as a Nixa Junior High student until emergency medical personnel arrived on scene,” Cole said, in a release. “The student was transported to the hospital by ambulance where he was later pronounced deceased.”
Cole said the scene was secured and processed.
“At this time Christian County detectives, school resource deputies and the Christian County coroner continue to investigate the incident,” Cole said. “Preliminary indications from the investigation indicate the incident to be a suicide and at no time were any other students or school personnel in any danger.”
Cole said an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
Webster said teachers, counselors and crisis team members talked with students “about the situation and their feelings.”
