One student was killed and three
others injured in what police said may have been a gang-related
stabbing at a suburban high school north of Houston on
Wednesday, and a teenager has been arrested and charged with
murder in the case, authorities said.
Luis Alonzo Alfaro, 17, admitted the stabbing to
authorities, according to the Harris County Sheriff's office.
Sheriff Adrian Garcia
, who said the incident
may have been gang-related, said the student who died at Spring
High School was also 17. The other three victims were
transported to hospitals, treated and released, police said.
"We believe that a confrontation of some sort occurred ...
that ultimately led to a physical confrontation that then
produced weapons," Garcia said.
The high school in Spring, about 24 miles north of Houston
was locked down for hours after the incident and little
information was released to parents.
