CINCINNATI - 9 On Your Side spoke with a local priest who weighed in on the La Salle tragedy after a student attempted to commit suicide in a classroom Monday morning.
Father John Wall of St. Ignatius of Loyola Parish and School spoke about the pain and sorrow the family, friends and students who knew the victim must be feeling.
He said the situation must be handled very carefully.
"Counselors have to realize and be aware that kids have to talk this out. These are all high school people...they are adolescents. It's a wonderful time but it is a difficult time in many ways," said Wall.
