Bullying reported in Graham student suicide

The Bethel School District is investigating the death of a 16-year-old who committed suicide in Graham.

Friends from Graham-Kapowsin High School told KING-TV he was pushed over the edge by bullying. Police say the boy shot himself Tuesday at home.

School officials told the station Thursday that a derogatory text message was recently circulated, and the boy was involved in an off-campus fight.

The school says it never received any complaints about bullying from the boy or his parents.
