School officials in Wicomico County have released funeral information after a student died earlier in July.

Fruitland Primary School Assistant Principal Renee Hall announced Thursday that services for Jy’Rah Brown, a second grade student at the school, will be held on July 12 at Asbury United Methodist Church located on Camden Avenue, in Salisbury.

The viewing will be held from 10:00 AM-12:00 PM, followed by services at 12:00 PM. Brown died earlier in July after he was pulled from Leonard Mill Pond on June 26. He later died from his injuries.
