A San Antonio high school student found unconscious on campus Monday afternoon has died, according to reports.

Officials believe the Reagan High School student, who has not been identified, died of an apparent suicide. Police are investigating the incident as such.

Brenda Shelton, the school's principal, sent a letter to parents Monday afternoon, explaining that staff members called 911 and attempted life-saving measures after the student was discovered in a weight room at the campus.

"I struggle to send news like this ... but I want to make sure you have accurate information so that you are prepared to speak with your children about the situation," Shelton wrote.
