DENVER (AP) — Police say a teenage boy has died after an accidental fall at a school in Denver, but few details have been released.

The Denver Post reports the teen fell at Denver Academy Friday night.

A witness, Peter Mesropov, tells KCNC-TV the boy fell from the roof while playing a game with other boys.

Authorities haven’t released details of the fall, but police spokesman John White says it appeared to be accidental.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released. Denver Academy said on its website the boy was not a student at the school. The school said it was working with police on the incident.

The academy is a private school for students in first through 12th grades.
