Body of 14-year-old boy found behind Killeen elementary school

FORT HOOD, TX (KXXV) -

Fort Hood Officials have confirmed the body of a 14-year-old boy was discovered early Tuesday afternoon behind Clarke Elementary School on Fort Hood.

The boy's body was found by a teacher, who immediately notified Fort Hood law enforcement. The school was placed on lockdown while authorities conducted an initial response. This was a matter of procedure.

The lockdown was lifted after it was determined there was no threat to students, staff, or faculty.

The scene is being investigated by Special Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command. Officials say there is no threat to the public or the students at the school.

The parents of the deceased reported the boy missing earlier in the day, along with a weapon from the home.

Officials say no further information will be released at this time to protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation.
