Even if it looks like gang warfare and acts like gang warfare, apparently it’s not gang warfare.

Joshua Broussard, a 16-year-old sophomore, is dead and three others have been injured – one critically – after a stabbing in a Texas high school cafeteria Wednesday morning.

According to Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia, three people are currently in custody following the fight at Houston’s Spring High School around 7:10 a.m., although “gang warfare” has been pretty much “ruled out”.

The critically-injured but surviving student was originally listed in critical condition at Memorial Hermann Hospital but has been reported by his pastor as improving. The two other students who were injured are said to have sustained only minor injuries.

According to NY Daily News:

Reports of the fight having been gang related are being investigated by Garcia but believed to be unfounded.

Well, why don’t we ask the students, themselves?

A mother of a student who allegedly witnessed the stabbing recounted to KHOU of the terrifying phone call she received from her daughter telling her “they’re in here stabbing people.”

“She said the young man just collapsed,” the mother said of her daughter’s chilling recount that described the suspects as a group of five guys between 16 and 19 years of age and possibly part of a gang.
