Superintendent Benjamin Edmondson said the the incident was non-violent in nature.

"We have arranged mental health counselors available to talk with students and staff about normal responses to grief," Edmondson said. "We will not hesitate to employ additional resources as needed from the WISD, City and Sheriff's office as they have already reached out to us."
