(Newser) – A 17-year-old student was stabbed to death and three others injured during a fight at a Texas high school today. Three "persons of interest" are in custody, KHOU reports. All of the victims are students. One 16-year-old was airlifted to a nearby hospital in critical condition, though his parents and pastor say he will be OK. Unconfirmed Twitter reports indicate that a "gang fight" broke out in or near the cafeteria at Spring High School, which is located in a town of the same name outside Houston. Police say they'll investigate whether gangs were actually involved.

Students are being evacuated by bus to a nearby parking lot, parents tell the Houston Chronicle, adding that they're frustrated by the lack of communication about the incident from school officials. More than 100 people gathered to watch the buses arrive to pick up the students. One father tells KHOU that his son described the fight as having taken place in a back hallway, and said that five students were stabbed. "They sent me pictures of all the blood everywhere."

More casualties from the culture of death and godlessness/fatherlessness. Thanks to the commie left we will have more of this until we bring God and real, traditional discipline back into the schools, replace the state with real fathers, and throw all the secular humanists out of every institution of power in this country. Until then, keep on packing your weapon of choice and defend yourselves against all animals, including gangbangers and humanists.

Yes, if your fellow students get stabbed and there is blood all over, the first thing you should do is take out your cell phone and take pictures. Sigh.
