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.




Harris County 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.
