SPRING, Texas (AP) — A 17-year-old student has been stabbed to death and three others are injured after a fight at a Houston-area high school.

Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia says a confrontation around 7 a.m. Wednesday at Spring High School escalated and resulted in multiple stabbings. He says all the people involved in the fight were students in the Spring school district.

Three others described as "persons of interest" are being questioned by investigators. Garcia says authorities are not searching for any other suspects.

Garcia says two students have been hospitalized with minor injuries and the third is listed in good condition after being airlifted to a Houston hospital

Authorities did not say what prompted the confrontation.

Spring is about 20 miles north of Houston.

At least one person was killed and others injured in an altercation at a high school in suburban Houston, according to law enforcement officials.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office did not say whether the people involved in the fight about 7 a.m. Wednesday at Spring High School were all students. But parent Lakesia Brent said her son, a sophomore at the school, told her students were bleeding and at least one was on a gurney being transported by medical personnel.

Officials at Spring High School did not return calls.

A dispatcher for the air ambulance at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center in Houston confirmed a 16-year-old boy was transported with stab wounds.

The school was under lockdown but parents have been told that students will be released to their care Wednesday morning.

Brent said her son sent her at least a dozen texts asking her to come pick him up from the school, which is about 20 miles north of Houston. "He's just afraid," she said.

She described the situation as "ridiculous," saying fights at the school were a problem in the last academic year.
