STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — A high school freshman allegedly shot a senior at the teenager’s home after a fight at their school, the DeKalb County School District told WAGA.

A group of four or five high schools ended up in a fight on Wednesday in the Stephenson High School bus lane.

The next day, just after noon, officers responded to the senior’s home and found the boy unresponsive suffering from a gunshot wound.

He was taken to the hospital where he later died.
