An East Texas school district released a statement following the shooting death of one of their high school students.

“It is with great sadness that I inform everyone of the death of Pewitt High School Sophomore, Deadrian “Big D” Webster. Deadrian passed yesterday evening due to a sustained gunshot wound. This a tragic loss for Deadrian’s family, as well as, our school family and community.
