Robinson High School student commits suicide in school's parking lot

ROBINSON, TX (KXXV) - Police have confirmed that a Robinson High School student has died of a self inflicted gunshot wound in the school's parking lot Wednesday morning.

School officials secured all students inside the building and sent an automated call to all Robinson ISD parents about the suicide.

Police say at no time were any other students or staff in danger, and the gun was never outside the 18-year-old's pickup. He was pronounced dead by Justice of the Peace Diane Hensley, who ordered the body to be sent for an autopsy.

Robinson Chief of Police Rusty Smith says students were allowed to leave Robinson High School with parents following the incident, but they couldn't leave by themselves.

The Education Service Center Region 12 Crisis Response Team has been sent to the school to provide counseling to the students.

There will be a prayer vigil Wednesday at Victorious Life Church in Robinson from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. to remember the Robinson High School student.
