MILFORD, Conn. (AP) — A 16-year-old girl was stabbed to death inside a Connecticut high school and a teenage boy has been taken into police custody.

Emergency responders were called to Jonathan Law High School in Milford shortly after 7 a.m. Friday.

School Superintendent Elizabeth Feser identified the girl as Maren Sanchez, a junior at the school who was well-like by her peers and teachers.

Police Chief Keith Mello said a 16-year-old boy was taken into custody. His name wasn’t released because of juvenile offender laws.

Police say staff members and paramedics performed live-saving measures on the girl, but she later died at Bridgeport Hospital.

Students described an emotional scene where people were crying as police and paramedics swarmed the school.
