March 11, 2019– Mary Greeley News – HOUSTON — Police say a fight over a brownie has left a 14-year-old Houston boy dead of a stab wound to the eye and another 14-year-old boy on the run from authorities.
Houston Independent School District police say the boy died Friday of the knife wound suffered Wednesday afternoon.
District Police Chief Paul Cordova said the fight erupted after school Wednesday outside a convenience store across from the Jane Long Academy in southwest Houston. He said that when the victim was loaded into an ambulance, he still acted as if the fight were continuing.
The chocolate treat fueled a fatal melee Wednesday at a corner store across from the Sharpstown school, according to several teens who attended a candlelight vigil Sunday evening for the slain teen. Another 14-year-old boy allegedly stabbed Brian Angel in the head.
“The kid who stabbed Brian just walked away,” eighth-grader Hetly Alverez said.
Brian spent the next two days in a hospital and died Friday, officials said. The suspected stabber was arrested Friday and charged as a juvenile.
Eighth-grader Emily Ramos, who lives in the same apartment complex as the suspect, said he and Brian were not close.
Emily said she was upset that it took two days for the boy to be tracked to his parents’ apartment so close to her own.
“I was scared and mad,” she said. “The police never looked for him at his house. We had to go call the police.”
Five minutes later, the apartment complex in the 5400 block of Ashbrook Drive was swarming with police, she said. Authorities have not identified the accused assailant due to his age. He has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, officials said Friday.
Houston ISD officials said in a statement Friday that grief counselors will return to Jane Long Academy when school resumes after spring break.
Jane Long Academy is a neighborhood middle school and magnet high school.
