DANBURY, CT (WFSB) -- Counselors and support staff are being made available at Danbury High School after a student passed away over the weekend.

Police said the teen died after falling from the Danbury Fair Mall parking garage. The fall appears to have been intentional, according to police.

It happened just after 1 p.m. on Saturday.

In a letter, Danbury school officials urged parents and guardians to seek school officials or support staff if a child may be having difficulties.

“This is a difficult time for everyone involved. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family,” the letter said.
