14-Year-Old Stabbed to Death at East Los Angeles Middle School.

EAST LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Deputies were called Friday to East Los Angeles, where a young student was fatally stabbed outside David Wark Griffith Junior High School.MOSCOW, January 24 (Sputnik) — Homicide detectives are investigating the death of a teenager stabbed to death with scissors at a middle school in Los Angeles, California, a local lieutenant at the County Sheriff’s Department said. “The investigators are just doing interviews now, but we don’t have any indication that there was a fight prior to the stabbing,” Lt. The suspect is described only as a male Hispanic juvenile, and it’s not clear whether he was a student at the school or what kind of weapon he used in the stabbing.

Firefighters responded at 3:08 p.m. to a report of a stabbing victim on the school steps and took the youth to County-USC Medical Center, a Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher said. Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman Monica Carazo said the victim was stabbed by another boy as he stood on the perimeter of school grounds immediately after classes let out for the day. Several parents whose children were in after-school programs were also waiting outside the school, said Torres, whose daughter is in the seventh grade and attends the after-school cheer program. The suspect, a gang member, asked Cruz where he was from, a common tactic by gang members to determine gang affiliation, then stabbed him in the torso, according to KCAL.

The school, just starting its afterschool program, was locked down after the stabbing “to ensure the students’ safety by making sure the grounds were safe and to give authorities a chance to see if anyone witnessed the fatality,” Strickland said. “Parents and students were brought to the auditorium so they could hear more about why it was important to keep students later than usual,” he said, adding that students were to be released one at a time to ensure that they were going home with a family member.
