Another teenager has reportedly committed suicide this afternoon in Hazleton. The city's police department has called a press conference for tonight at 8 to discuss the incident.

An emergency responder call came across the police scanner at about 4 this afternoon reporting a 14-year-old found hanging in a North Church Street home.

No other details have since been released and no other broadcasts came across the scanner related to that initial call.

The Times Leader will be in Hazleton tonight for the press conference and will update this story tonight.

See Wednesday's Times Leader for the complete story and updates on the three suicides in Nanticoke and the greater Pittston area that occurred over the past week.
