Teen commits suicide after watching video about bullying

  • Jordan Lewis watched a video regarding bullying at his high school in Illinois and shot himself the next day. 

    Police had gone to Jordan Lewis' house the day before he committed suicide after receiving reports from his friend's grandmother about him wanting to harm himself. 

    Jordan's father claims he left behind a note stating that he was being bullied. He had mentioned to his father that he was pushed by his classmates and was also being picked on. 

    Brad Lewis said he asked his son to inform the authorities; the school reported it didn't have any information on the same. 

    Lewis posted a video on Facebook about bullying only hours after his son's death and said it "has to stop."

    The video has been shared over 2,000 times and investigations are ongoing.
