MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — A student recently charged in a robbery fired a gun into the ceiling of his high school gym and then killed himself in front of about 150 classmates, police said.

Jajuan Holmes, 18, fatally shot himself about 10 a.m. Thursday at Davidson High School, police Chief Phillip Garrett said. He described the shooting as an isolated incident and said no one else was injured.

Holmes was charged a few weeks ago in a Dairy Queen robbery, which may have been a factor leading to the shooting, Garrett said. But he said the teen's death remained under investigation.
