A second Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student has died in what police are calling "an apparent suicide".

The student, who was enrolled at the Parkland, Florida, school at the time of death, has not been publicly identified, the CNN reported.

The death occurred late on Saturday and is under investigation, said Coral Springs Police spokesman Tyler Reik.

It's unclear under what circumstances the student died, or what connection, if any, the student had to last year's shooting at the high school.

News of the student's death came as the Parkland community was mourning the passing of a former Marjory Stoneman Douglas student, Sydney Aiello, who died on March 17.

Aiello, who survived the 2018 massacre at the school, took her own life after suffering from survivor's guilt and being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, her mother told CNN affiliate WFOR.

A funeral for Aiello, who was a student at Florida Atlantic University, took place on Friday.

Seventeen people -- 14 students and three staff members -- were killed when a gunman opened fire at the high school on February 14, 2018. The shooter, who confessed, has been indicted on 17 counts of murder.
