Parents from Saugus High School were informed Thursday afternoon of the death of a member of the school’s football team.
Christian Nsubuga, a newly enrolled 11th-grader, was found unresponsive by first responders Wednesday morning. The case is being handled by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.
“The cause of death is reported as undetermined,” said Ed Winter from Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner. “Autopsy is pending.”
Nsubuga, 15, was found on the 28000 block of Pietro Drive in Valencia and was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:32 a.m., Winter said.
Saugus High parents received the email announcement from Vince Ferry, the school’s principal:
