A suspect has been identified in the fatal Houston school stabbing that took place at Spring High School early Wed. morning. Chron reports Sept. 5 that Luis Alonzo Alfaro, 17, was arrested after allegedly stabbing another 17-year-old to death and injuring three others after an altercation near the school's cafeteria.
It's still unclear if the Houston school stabbing was gang-related, but many believe it may have been. The mother of one student said she's transferring her daughter from the school after hearing about gangs and fights breaking out at Spring High School, where 3,000 students attend.
Alfaro is being held at Harris County Jail on $150,000 bond, county records reveal.
Two of the injured students in the stabbings received minor injuries and another student was listed in critical condition, but soon improved.
The high school was placed on immediate lockdown shortly after 7 a.m. Wed. morning after the violent attacks. Needless to say, the Houston school stabbing shook the community and made many question the safety of students. Unfortunately, no one can predict when a someone will flip a switch and violently turn on students.
