All classes have been canceled in the Algona Community School District for Friday because a body was found overnight on school property.

Algona police say a 911 call came in at 1:20 a.m. about suspicious activity at a school property. Officials say the body of 23-year-old Shane Lee Ballenger was found on the grounds of the Algona High/Middle School.

The school district called off classes for Friday so police can investigate the incident.

Officials say it appears Ballenger died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death.

Police say Ballenger was a one-time student at the school but had no current connection to it.
