CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati Public Schools has released some of the video surrounding an incident involving an 8-year-old who later committed suicide, reports CBS affiliate WKRC.

The children's faces are blurred and it's hard to see exactly what happened, but the video appears to show a boy hitting another boy and do something to a third boy that left him on the ground for several minutes. That boy was Gabriel Taye.

Within 48 hours, he hanged himself in his bedroom, prompting an investigation by Cincinnati police.

Cincinnati Public Schools released a 24-minute surveillance video Friday that appears to show Gabriel trying to shake the hand of a boy who had hit another child, and then collapsing to the floor after being pushed into a wall at the entrance of a boys' bathroom.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, a homicide detective said the surveillance video captured "bullying and could even rise to the level of criminal assault" and noted in his report that after Gabriel fell to the ground, "many students step over, point, mock, nudge [and] kick" him.

Cornelia Reynolds, Gabriel's mother, declined an interview Friday and referred questions to her attorneys.
