Here is a statement from John Foley, Superintendent of Toledo Public Schools:

"The entire Toledo Public School staff, especially the staff at Harvard Elementary, is deeply saddened to learn of the sudden deaths of two of our students, Devine Chatman and Zyeri White. Both young men were charismatic students who were well liked by both their teachers and their classmates. A team of counselors was at Harvard today and will remain at the school for the rest of the week to help both the staff and students cope with this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with Devine and Zyeri's family."
