11 Year-Old Student Tragically Kills Himself During Zoom Class

An 11-year-old California boy tragically shot and killed himself during his online Zoom class on Wednesday while his microphone and camera were turned off. 

The boy, identified as Adan Llanos, was attending his online sixth grade class at Woodbridge Elementary School in San Joaquin County when he turned the gun on himself.  

His sister, who was online learning in another room, found him and told a neighbor and her teacher, who called for help.  

The San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene shortly after 11am after receiving several calls reporting that a person has been shot. 

Deputies responded to the home where the children were learning, on the 300 block of Sterling Street in Woodbridge, and found the child with a head injury. 

He was rushed to a hospital and died from his self-inflicted injuries. The sheriff's office said the boy's family was at his side at the hospital before he passed away.

'Our thoughts are with the family and all those affected by this tragic event,' the Sheriff's Office said on their Facebook page. 

Deputies are still investigating the details of the shooting. It's not clear whose gun he was using in the incident.

A GoFundMe page set up by Adan's aunt has been started to help with funeral expenses.
