SANTA CLARITA (CBSLA) — Nathan Berhow, the 16-year-old student suspected of killing two of his classmates at Saugus High School, succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead Friday afternoon, according to officials.

Berhow was on the honor roll and track team at Saugus High School, grew up as a Boy Scout, and had a girlfriend – so his motive in the deadly shooting at Saugus High School is a mystery to all who knew him.

He died shortly after 3:30 p.m. Friday, according to the sheriff’s department.

The 16-year-old Saugus High School student was identified by CBS News as the gunman in the shooting that killed a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy. Berhow succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead Friday afternoon, according to officials.

A motive is still not known for the shooting and Berhow, who had a girlfriend and was active in school life, does not seem to fit the stereotypical profile of a school shooter – depressed and angry at the world.

Jared Axen, the family’s next door neighbor, said he would never have imagined this would happen, much less involving Berhow.
