    Cops say two Prince William County, Va., high school students agreed to kill themselves.

    "We're not looking for a murder suspect here and I don't want to say anything more than that," Prince William County Police Maj. Ray Colgan told reporters Tuesday morning. 

    Due to Tuesday's statewide elections, Forest Park High School was closed for the day. However, a Prince William County Public Schools spokesman said the building was open for mourners, according to InsideNOVA. There will also be grief counselors at the school on Wednesday, school officials said.
