Possible Gang violence could be the reason why a 13-year-old was arrested in Los Angeles this past weekend.
The murder whose name was not released due to his age was arrested Saturday for stabbing a 14-year-old high school student to death outside Griffith Middle School in East Los Angeles.
At approximately 1:30 a.m., investigators arrested the teenager at his home in Los Angeles. He was taken to the sheriff’s East Los Angeles Station and booked for suspicion of murder, said Deputy Guillermina Saldana of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.
The alleged murderer’s name was not released. The victim’s name has not been released by the coroner, but family members have told reporters he was Steven Cruz, a student at nearby Garfield High School.
They believe the stabbing could’ve been Gang related. The assailant was allegedly a member of a gang.
