NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas -- The Canyon High School student air-lifted to a hospital after being punched at school Tuesday has died, Julie Jerome with Comal ISD confirmed Thursday morning.
According to the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office, the body of 15-year-old Logan Davidson was received from University Hospital late Wednesday evening.
Police told KVUE News the incident happened during a passing period in front of a lot of witnesses in the hallway. They say the juvenile suspect waited outside of Davidson's classroom and when he walked out, the student punched Davidson twice. He did not have a chance to defend himself.
Police said emergency responders found Davidson knocked unconscious and bleeding from the face.
The campus was locked down temporarily Tuesday morning, and Davidson was transported to an area hospital via medical helicopter, a district spokesperson said.
The juvenile suspect was another 15-year-old student who has been charged with aggravated assault, according to the New Braunfels Police Department. He is currently being detained at the Guadalupe County Juvenile Detention Center. Those charges may be upgraded to murder.
Jerome said counselors were at the high school to speak with students and staff who may have witnessed the incident. Counselors would be on campus again Thursday for assistance.
