Police: 9-year-old found hanged in Texas school

Grief counselors were on hand at a suburban Dallas elementary school after a 9-year-old boy was found hanged in a school bathroom.

The fourth-grader was found by school staff at Stewart's Creek Elementary School on Thursday afternoon, police said. Lt. Darren Brockway said the boy "had reportedly hung himself in a bathroom" and was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Autopsy results were pending.

No criminal charges were expected, police said. The school district said Friday that further details would not be released out of respect to the boy's family.

The Colony is about 20 miles north of Dallas.
