PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) — A 15-year-old boy who was shot at an Arkansas junior high school earlier this week has died. A Pine Bluff police spokesman says the boy, identified by his family and the Watson Chapel School District as Daylon Burnett, died Wednesday at a Little Rock hospital. A judge has set a $1 million bond for another 15-year-old boy accused of shooting his classmate Monday at Watson Chapel Junior High School in Pine Bluff, about 40 miles southeast of Little Rock. The boy was being held on a first-degree battery charge in the shooting.
