ALEXANDRIA - A student at Natchitoches Central High School has died after he was beaten during a fight.

The victim was identified as 18-year-old Johnquaries Smith.

Smith was attacked in what police are calling a random act of violence. He was air lifted to the hospital following the attack and placed on life support but later died.

A sixteen-year-old was arrested and charged with manslaughter. Because he's a minor, his name will only be released if prosecutors decide to try him as an adult.

The attack is under investigation.
