NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a South Carolina high school student doused himself in flammable liquid and set himself on fire, killing him.

Academic Magnet High School officials told WCSC-TV that a team of 45 grief counselors were on campus Friday to help students cope with the teen's death.

Authorities say 16-year-old Aaron Williams doused his clothes with a flammable liquid Wednesday morning and ran toward the school's doors. Dozens of teachers and students saw him on fire. Williams died a day later from the burns.

Classmates say Williams was known around school as the "Boom Box Kid" because he carried around a large, portable stereo like the kind that were popular in the 1980s.
