His devastated family have said they are struggling to come to terms with his death over the past week.

Dubbed the “little prince,” the seventh-grade student at Allerton High School enjoyed boxing.

His death has left the teacher weeping in the hallways, and witnesses said staff wept after hearing the tragic news.

Layth’s two sisters, aged 15 and 14, and his brother, nine, are supported by family members.

Speaking from the family home, Layth’s aunt said: “His father is not doing well at all, he is devastated.

“Layth came here every day to break his fast of Ramadan. Poor boy, he had too much on his mind.

“His mother took her own life two years ago. We are all devastated.”

Tributes on social media described the situation as “absolutely heartbreaking” and many sent their thoughts to Layth’s family.

One wrote: “RIP little prince. May you find salvation and everlasting happiness in the kingdom of God where you are safe forever. Quiet little one.”

Another added: “This is very sad why does this keep happening”.

A spokesman for Allerton High School confirmed this LeedsLive that they were told the student had died but had “not heard anything” since.

They added: “Right now we can only confirm that one young student, a seventh grade student, has died.”

A Leeds City Council spokesman added: “The death of Layth Maumoniat is extremely sad and we send our sincere condolences to his family, friends and everyone else who knew him.
