Hamilton High School student dies from gunshot wound
Hamilton High School student, Aaron Zagorski, 18, died of an apparent gunshot wound on New Year's Day.
The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department received a call about his death the morning of New Year's Day.
Jennifer Wallschleger with the Sheriff's Department said an autopsy report has not been completed. She could not confirm if the wound was self-inflicted, but said there is no reason to worry there was a gunman involved. She said the high school's resource officer has brought in counselors to help students.
Zagorski was an athletic standout playing football for the Hamilton Chargers and also running track. He was recently selected as a student of the month in November for academic achievements.
Funeral services are planned for 9 a.m. Jan. 5 at St. James Catholic Church in Menomonee Falls. A mass will follow at noon. Schmidt and Bartelt is serving the family. His obituary can be found here.
