Stabbing At Texas High School
A 16-year-old student is dead and three others injured after a stabbing in a Texas high school cafeteria Wednesday morning.
Via NY Daily News reports:
Three people are in custody following the fight at Houston’s Spring High School around 7:10 a.m. said Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia at a press conference.
A second 16-year-old originally listed in critical condition at an area hospital has been reported by his pastor as improving. The two other students injured are said to have sustained minor injuries.
The single fatality has been identified by KPRC as Joshua Broussard who was a sophomore at the school.
Garcia described the fight breaking out over a “confrontation of some sort” that ultimately led into a physical fight that produced “sharp” weapons of some kind.
“We have not recovered those weapons so we are still conducting that aspect of the investigation,” he said while claiming that those currently in custody are the only persons of interest in the case.
A mother of a student who allegedly witnessed the stabbing recounted to KHOU of the terrifying phone call she received from her daughter telling her “they’re in here stabbing people.”
A few hours later a Hispanic adult man and a teen, suspected by local reports as being one of the first two teens, were seen being escorted back into the school in handcuffs.
It was not clear if the man and teenagers are the three suspects described by Garcia in the stabbing.
