WALTERBORO, S.C. — Authorities say a fifth grader in South Carolina has died from injuries she suffered in a fight at her elementary school earlier this week.

Colleton County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Shalane Lowes said the girl died at a Charleston hospital Wednesday.

Colleton County School District officials say the girl was hurt Monday during a fight at Forest Hills Elementary School in Walterboro. Authorities haven’t detailed how the girl was injured or what the fight was about.

The coroner’s office didn’t immediately release the girl’s name or her cause of death.
