11-Year-old Boy Shoots Himself Dead During Zoom ClassBy cheatmaster 09:30 Fri, 04 Dec 2020 Comments
The child was identified as Adan Llanos, who was attending his virtual sixth grade class at Woodbridge Elementary School in San Joaquin County when he turned the gun on himself with the camera and microphone turned off.
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.
Luis Llano, who identified himself as Adan's uncle, denied claims that the boy had committed suicide in a Facebook tribute.
He said that Adan was not suicidal but did not offer further details about what might have happened.
'It is with a heavy heart that we inform everyone that on December 2 my nephew; Adan Manuel Llanos, has passed and is in heaven,' the tribute read.
'He was a wonderful child full of life and joy. He was the most respectful and sweetest boy I've ever had the honor of calling my nephew! I ask of guys to please help our family in need, if at least share the post! We ask of you all to please refrain from any speculation and if you see any comments politely ask them to only say positive things.
'He was not suicidal! This young man was an angel that we had the privilege of knowing!'
