According to the Cochise County Sheriff's Office, Tuesday's student death at Coronado Elementary School was by suicide.

On Tuesday morning, CCSO found the body of a 14-year-old boy dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

No others were harmed in the incident, which was investigated as a homicide until it was confirmed Wednesday to be a suicide.

A crisis counseling team is at the school to care for students.
