According to ABC News, an individual from Spring High School in Houston has been mortally wounded after a stabbing. Although details remain sparse, it seems a number of fellow students were also caught up in the frenzied events, and several young people are thought to have been injured.
According to myFox Houston, officials from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office stated that three individuals have been escorted into custody.
During a news conference, the local sheriff stated a boy of 17 years of age had been killed. His corpse remains in the school’s cafeteria, presumably, so forensics can make sense of the violence.
Additional reports from a spokesperson of the Memorial Hermann Hospital indicated that a 16-year-old patient had been hospitalized, and was in a critical condition. The young boy’s condition has since improved, however, and his condition upgraded to stable.
Within a short period after the attack had commenced, social media networks were inundated with news and imagery of the chaos. One Twitter picture seemed to show a trail of blood tracking through the school’s hallways.
SKYFOX, upon arriving at the scene, witnessed a number of detained males as they were escorted from the premises by police officers.
Meanwhile, reports from Chron seem to suggest the incident to have been gang-related, based upon the sheriff’s rudimentary assessment of events.
