This morning at a Houston High School, a 17 year old was stabbed to death. Spring High School is in mourning due to her death. One child was extremely hurt and was sent to the emergency room for a surgery. Another two students suffered minor injuries.

Three students are to blame and police think that it was gang related and due to racial tensions, according to The Inquisitr.

No names have been released at this time. There are no weapons that have yet to be found, relating to the incident.

The Inquisitr also released a statement from the superintendent of Spring High School; "Every parent sends their child to school believing that school should be one of the safe-haven places.… It’s what we spend our night and days working for, and what I lose sleep over. We go into this business to make life better for children, and they need to be able to trust the adults who are responsible for their security and their care.”

Student crime is becoming more frequent in this day and age. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, from July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010, there were 33 school-associated violent deaths in elementary and secondary schools in the United States. Of the 33 student, staff, and nonstudent school-associated violent deaths occurring between July 1, 2009, and June 30, 2010, 25 were homicides, 5 were suicides, and 3 were legal interventions.
