    Carmel, IN (WRTV) — The family of a Carmel High School student who took his own life after getting in trouble at school has filed a lawsuit against the school district.

Patrick McCalley got in trouble for a Snapchat message, showing a noose around the neck of an African-American schoolmate.

McCalley died by suicide after the school had him sign an affidavit over the incident without his parents being notified.

His parents are now suing the Carmel-Clay School District for negligence and for violations of due process of the Fourth Amendment’s ban on unreasonable searches.
