Metro police are investigating the case of a Beach High School sophmore found shot to death a few blocks from school.
Elijah Norman, 15, was found dead in front of a house on Victory Drive near Bulloch Street about 7:30 a.m. Thursday.
He had previously been reported as a runaway to Metro police.
His principal says Elijah still was attending school and was well-known among his peers.
"He is not that person that got in trouble all the time," Principal Derrick Muhammad said. "He's not the ‘A' student. He's not the ‘F' student. But he's that middle student that's here every day and does what he's supposed to do and goes to class."
No arrests have been made in the case, and police have not announced any suspects.
