Teen dies after drowning in pool

A 14-year-old boy died Sunday after drowning in the backyard swimming pool of an unoccupied house next to his Hickory Hill home in the 6800 block of Rockingham.

Elijah Mayes' mother found him unconscious in the pool after 4:00 p.m.. Paramedics transported him to Methodist LeBonheur Germantown, where he died Sunday night.

The unoccupied home is up for sale. Police say they aren't sure if all the gates surrounding the pool were properly secured.

The investigation is ongoing. It's not known if any charges will be filed.
