The 15-year-old boy, whose name was not released by authorities due to his age, was charged with aggravated assault following his surrender the day after the shooting.

He is now facing a murder charge, as pointed out by Fox News.

Police also told the outlet that the shooting ensued after a fight at a concession stand erupted. Authorities were escorting teenagers out the gymnasium when the shooting happened.

A school district police officer was grazed by the bullet, but was not seriously injured, police told the Associated Press.

Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Michael Hinojosa said Strickland was a former student in the district, while the 15-year-old suspect was a current student.
