A grade 10 pupil shot and killed another pupil before killing himself.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, the first day of the 2022 school year, according to the Gauteng Education Department. During school hours, 16-year-old pupils from Daveyton’s Lesiba Secondary School allegedly quarrelled.
After an argument, one of the students shot the other in the head outside the school grounds. The teenager then turned the gun on himself.
The department’s spokesperson Steve Mabona: “The police are investigating the circumstances surrounding this incident. We’ve also sent a psycho-social unit team to conduct the necessary counselling.”
