    A substitute teacher at a Prince George's County high school died suddenly in the hallway of the school Friday.

    Paramedics were unable to revive the man after he suffered a medical emergency in the hallway of Largo High School just before classes started at 7:45 a.m. He was pronounced dead at the school.

    Although students were in the building, officials said, no students witnessed what happened.

    "Students were around when this incident occurred," said Max Pugh of Prince George’s County Public Schools. "We kept them in the class, first period, for about three hours while the investigation was going on.”

    Max Pugh, a spokesman for Prince George's County Schools, said Friday was the teacher's first day working at the high school, but he had worked within the school system since 2003.

    His identity has not been released.
