Student Dies After High School Fight Over A Boy
A teenage girl has died after getting jumped by several girls in her class over a juvenile argument. A fight broke out between the girl and another student in their high school bathroom before classes commenced for the day…eventually resulting in the girl’s passing after other girls jumped in and banged her head on the hard sink.
A 16-year-old girl died after getting into a fight with another girl over a boy at a school in Delaware.
Officials have not named the girl, but friends and sources close to the investigation identified her as Amy Inita Joyner-Francis, according to The News-Journal. Joyner-Francis was jumped by a gang of bullies in her school’s bathroom Thursday morning.
Officials said the fight broke out around 8.15am before classes at Howard High School of Technology, a vocational school in Wilmington, Delaware. Students who witnessed the deadly scuffle said that the 16-year-old and another girl started fighting in one of the women’s bathrooms over a boy, when a gang of other girls jumped the victim.
At one point, someone banged her head on a sink, according to witnesses who spoke with 6ABC.
Kaya Wilson was in a stall when the fight broke out and spoke with the local news station after leaving school. ‘She was fighting a girl, and then that’s when all these other girls started banking her -like jumping her – and she hit her head on the sink,’ Wilson said.
The victim was flown to A.I. DuPont Children’s Hospital in critical condition, where she was later pronounced dead.The cause of death has not been confirmed
News media outlets quoted Police Chief Bobby Cummings as saying that two female students were taken to police headquarters for questioning.
Absolutely ridiculous! We know kids fight…this is something they have done since school was invented. But it’s nothing short of a tragedy and a shame that this young girl had to lose her life over something they all probably would have forgotten about in a month if things hadn’t gone so far…
