Authorities arrested a 13-year-old boy on Saturday morning in connection with the stabbing death of a boy outside an East Los Angeles middle school, officials said.
LA County Sheriff's deputies arrested the boy at his East LA home between 1:30 and 2:30 a.m., a watch commander with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.
It came hours after a 14-year-old boy was stabbed with scissors outside David Wark Griffith Middle School. The boy, whose identity hasn't been released, was attacked at 3:08 p.m. Friday and died at a local hospital, officials said.
He was a student at a nearby high school, according to Los Angeles Unified School District officials; it was unclear if his attacker was a student at either school.
