BRYAN COUNTY, OK -- The student who shot herself inside a truck parked outside of Silo Schools has died, according to Bryan County Sheriff Ken Golden.

Golden confirms a female student shot herself around 11 am Monday morning. He said the student was sitting alone in the truck when she shot herself and that no other students witnessed the shooting.

Students and faculty were on lockdown for more than an hour before officials cancelled school and parents were notified to pick up their children.

The Bryan County Sheriff's Department, the Durant Police Department, Tribal Police, Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation all responded to the shooting.

"We want parents to understand that at no time was there a weapon inside the building and no other students were in danger at any time," Silo Schools Superintendent Dr. Bill Caruthers said.

Golden said the student was transported to a Plano hospital where she later died.
