A 14-year-old junior high school student from Utah killed himself in front of all of his classmates including a few whom had been bullying the boy mercilessly.
The boy had come across a few of his classmates and scattering of parents when he pulled out a handgun and shot himself in the head.
David Q. Phan apparently found the gun at home in a locked safe, but it is believed that he did NOT bring the gun with him to campus.
Here's how one witness describes the incident:
"I was just walking. I hear a big sound and I hear everybody yelling and then I turned around and I saw it and there was a lot of blood."
Another student commented on how the "sweet" teen was bullied constantly at school. Here's what she said:
"They were just mean to him for no reason. I heard it, people (talking about him). I don't think people realize how much words can hurt."
We are obviously extremely distraught to hear this news, but we'll pray for his family and all of his friends.
Bullying has GOT to stop.
