The stabbings happened during a fight between several students in a school corridor.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Department said 17-year-old student Luis Alonzo Alfaro pulled a knife during the fight and fatally stabbed one student and wounded three others.

 Joshua Broussard was identified as the deceased teen.

Alfaro admitted to the stabbing under questioning by homicide detectives and was charged with murder, the Sheriff’s Department said Wednesday evening in a statement.

Alfaro is booked into a Harris County jail with bail set at $50,000.

A preliminary court hearing is scheduled for Friday. Online court records list no attorney for Alfaro.

Authorities provided few details on what may have led to the fight, and no other information was available on the teenager who was killed.
