A 14-year-old boy was found dead Thursday afternoon at his home in Florence Township, authorities said. Deputies were called to a house at 34067 Hill Ave. by a stepparent shortly before 4 p.m. where they discovered the body of Damon Ward. A preliminary autopsy Friday indicated Ward died of a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound, the Goodhue County Sheriff's Office said.

Ward was an eighth-grader at Red Wing High School. The Sheriff's Office and county medical examiner are continuing to investigate.
