Faribault College Teacher Kills Himself

Faribault preparatory college is grieving the loss of their teacher after he shot himself Friday night.

Len Jones, 24, shot himself with a handgun in his faculty apartment at St. Mary’s School Friday night, the Star Tribune reported.

Seventh and ninth grade boys were in the dormitory at the time of the shooting and were quickly taken to another location while the adults went to the aid of Jones, Amy Wolf, a spokeswoman for the school said.

Jones started working at St. Mary’s six years ago and brought with his “southern flare? from South Carolina, Wolf said.

Faribault’s flags flew half-staff Saturday in remembrance of the beloved teacher, the Star Tribune reported.
