Berkeley High Principal Juan Raygoza notified families of the teenager’s death in an email Monday evening, adding that counseling will be available at the high school in the coming days.
"I am heartbroken to inform you of the death of a Berkeley High School student in an incident that took place only a block away from Berkeley High School during the busy lunch period today," Raygoza wrote.
"Our hearts go out to this family and to everyone in the Berkeley High School community who may be impacted by this loss."
Berkeley police told Berkeleyside that they were conducting a death investigation but it did not "appear to be any signs of foul play."
