Arlington ISD Superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos released the following statement Thursday evneing on the student’s death. 

It is with a heavy heart that I announce that one of our students at Bowie High School was fatally shot off campus after school today. A second Bowie High School student was also shot and is receiving medical care. Out of respect for the families involved and the minor status of the students, the Arlington ISD will not be releasing any student names this evening. The Arlington Police Department is fully investigating the shootings. Any speculation on the part of Arlington ISD officials regarding the incident would not be appropriate.

For tonight, the Arlington ISD has canceled the Bowie High School freshman and junior varsity football games against Trimble Tech. School counselors are preparing to assist students through this tragedy and district officials will support the families of the students involved as needed.

The Arlington ISD asks that the entire community keep the families of these students in your thoughts.
