SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The Canyon High School student air-lifted to a hospital after a fistfight Tuesday has died, Julie Jerome with Comal ISD confirmed Thursday morning.

According to the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office, 15-year-old Logan Davidson body was received from University Hospital late-Wednesday evening.

Police said emergency responders found Davidson knocked unconscious and bleeding from the face.

The campus was locked down temporarily Tuesday morning while the fight was broken up and the student transported to an area hospital via medical helicopter with serious injuries, a district spokesperson said.

The juvenile suspect was another 15-year-old student who has been charged with aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, according to the New Braunfels Police Department. He is currently being detained at the Guadalupe County Juvenile Detention Center.

"Any further or enhanced criminal charges will be at the discretion of the Comal County District attorney's Office," a press release issued by the New Braunfels Police Department said.

Jerome said counselors were at the high school to speak with students and staff who may have witnessed the fight. Counselors would be on campus again Thursday for assistance.

Comal ISD Superintendent Andrew Kim released the following statement:

"It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of one of our Canyon High School students involved in Tuesday's altercation. Our thoughts and prayers go to the families of both students involved and we will all work to protect their privacy during this difficult time. Campus and district counselors will be available throughout the week at CHS to assist students and staff process this shocking and tragic event."

The incident is still under investigation by the New Braunfels Police Department Criminal Investigations Unit.
