17-year-old student was struck and killed by a city service truck Tuesday morning as he was crossing a Highland Park street not far from a charter high school.
The accident occurred after the Los Angeles Unified School District closed all campuses due to a threat sent to several school board members.
The boy was crossing the street at Avenue 60 and Figueroa Street at about 7:30 a.m. when the truck struck him, according to Officer Jane Kim of the Los Angeles Police Department.
It is unclear whether the boy was a student at the nearby Los Angeles International Charter High School.
Late Tuesday morning, the body still lay on Figueroa, an orange tarp covering it. Next to the body was a black backpack.
People stood around studying the scene, and police examined the tires of the truck.
