KENNETT, MO (KAIT) -

Kennett police say two juveniles who got onto the roof of a school building were spending the night together when they decided to go to a convenience store before climbing an awning.

According to Kennett Police Captain Rick Groves, the juveniles climbed the awning before one of the children fell through a skylight into the band room at the Kennett Middle School.

A 14-year-old boy was taken to the hospital while his 16-year-old friend was not injured.

According to Kennett School District Superintendent Chris Wilson, police were called to Kennett Middle School around 5:30 a.m. on Friday.

Dr. Wilson said the juvenile was transferred to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, but the condition of that juvenile isn't known. 

Kennett police are investigating.
