The Spring High School stabbing left a 17-year-old student dead and three other people injured when this stabbing took place on school grounds. Police have three people in custody, but are still searching for the weapons used in Spring High School stabbing early Wednesday morning, according to UPI.com on Sept. 4.
Sheriff Adrian Garcia held a news conference today; he reports that the one victim died at the scene of the high school from a stabbing incident. Two of the injured were taken to Memorial Hermann Northwest Hospital and one was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center.
Out of the three victims, two have minor injuries and the third victim’s condition is unknown at this time. Police are paying attention to the “suggestions” that this stabbing was gang-related, but they were also quick to relay that they’ve never been called out to the Spring High School for any gang-related activity before today.
The fight occurred early in the day, just shortly after 7 a.m. on Wednesday. The fight somehow broke out in a hallway near the cafeteria, the sheriff's office said. This Spring, Texas school has not had any type of violence such as this before.
A spokesperson for one of the victims, Rev. E.A. Deckard of Green House International Church claims that the incident had nothing to do with gang violence, It was a dispute between two people that had gone on for some time.
The reverend said that the stabbing was "simply a misunderstanding between two people." "Simply" is probably not an appropriate word to use for this violence especially, since a teen lost his life in this stabbing, or "misunderstanding."
