HOUSTON — A 14-year-old boy was arrested Friday in the fatal stabbing of another 14-year-old.
The juvenile suspect was arrested Friday in the 5400 block of Ashbrook and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
The 14-year-old victim, who was stabbed Wednesday outside Jane Long Academy, died Friday.
Houston Police said the teen was arguing with another juvenile when that person stabbed him and ran away from the scene on Bellaire Boulevard in the Sharpstown area.
Jane Long Academy released a statement Friday, saying, "We are heartbroken to learn that our student has passed away. We offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends and all who loved and cared for him. We had counselors available at Jane Long Academy this week to offer emotional support to students and staff and they will return after Spring Break."
The teen was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition.
Initially, the HISD Police Department was investigating the stabbing, but HPD took over the case when the victim's condition took a turn for the worse.
