Houston Police said a black teenage boy was found hanged outside an elementary school, reported the Houston Chronicle.
The boy was found in a remote corner on Ehrhardt Elementary School property in Spring, and Harris County sheriff’s deputies are investigating as a suicide.
Investigators said they have reviewed surveillance video, spoke to neighbors and examined other evidence that they said indicated the teen had killed himself.
The apparent suicide is the second reported this week in Harris County, where Houston police said a Latino man was found hanged early Monday.
Houston police said family members described that man as suicidal, and they said they found no evidence of foul play.
Two other Black men have been found hanged recently in Palmdale, California, and the public has called for additional investigations after their deaths were ruled likely suicides.
