Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said a 17-year-old student was killed in an altercation at the school that began at about 7:10 a.m. CDT. Three other students were injured, including one who was airlifted in critical condition and two who suffered minor injuries.
Three people have been detained for questioning in connection with the stabbings and, according to Garcia, authorities have in custody those individuals think they need to have in custody.
Garcia said the investigation into the attack is ongoing and that police are still searching for the weapon(s) used in the attack as well as interviewing witnesses who saw the stabbings take place.
KPRC-TV in Houston reported the school nurse contacted emergency crews and reported five stabbing victims and that the stabbing may have taken place inside the cafeteria.
