    Officials are investigating the death of a school police officer at a Northeast Philadelphia high school.

    Investigators say 50-year-old Daryl Giles, a school officer at George Washington High School, collapsed in the staff bathroom on Monday. He was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

    Giles worked as a school officer for 19 years.

    Officials have not yet determined the exact cause of death but say that he suffered a medical emergency.

    A school district spokesperson also told NBC10 that there was a fight involving three students at the school earlier in the day. Those students were later arrested for disorderly conduct.

    Investigators have not yet revealed whether Giles was involved in that fight however.
