Deputies: Student fatally shoots self at Lake Minneola High School”

State Rep. Kamia Brown of Ocoee called Tuesday for the state to redouble efforts to provide mental health services for students after the apparent suicide of a student at Minneola High School in Lake County Tuesday morning. He was identified Tuesday afternoon as 17-year-old Seth Sutherland, a senior at the school.

"There has been one person injured from a gunshot at Lake Minneola High School".

Sutherland's family was informed about the shooting, and a chaplain was meeting with them, officials said. "There was a fire drill either immediately before the shooting took place or immediately after.and we're trying to review security footage to determine exactly when this happened and put together a good clear time frame of how the events unfolded". "There is no additional threat to students at LMHS or any other school". Lake Minneola High School and others in the area have been placed on lockdown out of an abundance of caution as we continue to investigate.

"The school is secure at this time, and we have reason to believe it to be a self-inflicted shot", the post said. The paper quoted school officials as saying the boy was alone and the shooting was not witnessed. Parents who wanted to take their children home early were able to pick them up at Minneola Elementary Charter School on Pearl Street.
