By the end of the incident, 10 teens, all 14- and 15-years-old, were issued tickets to appear in Fulton County Family Court. Nine kids were released to a parent, and Beene was left at the home with his sister.
Authorities said Beene shot himself the next day.
Since Saturday, people have flooded Twitter and Instagram with anecdotes about Beene and prayers for his family.
Cambridge High principal Ed Spurka sent an email message to parents alerting them of the teen’s death.
“It is with great sadness that I send this message to our community,” he wrote. “Cambridge High School mourns the loss of one of our beloved 9th graders, Reagan Beene. We express our deepest sympathy to the Beene family; our thoughts and prayers are with them in this time of grief.”
Counselors were at the school Monday. If necessary, counselors will be available through the end of the week, said Susan Hale, spokeswoman for Fulton County Schools.
A memorial service for Beene will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday at Stonecreek Church in Milton, according to an online obituary.
