HOUSTON (September 6, 2013)--Luis Alonzo Alfaro, 17, of Spring, who’s charged with murder in a knife attack at a suburban high school that left one student dead and three others injured, made a second brief court appearance Friday.

Defense attorney Milan Marinkovich declined to discuss the case after Friday's hearing.

Alfaro is charged in an attack Wednesday that left Joshua Devon Broussard, 17, dead and three others injured.

His bond was set at $150,000.

He made his first brief court appearance early Thursday during which details of his interview with detectives were disclosed.

Investigators say gang rivalry appears to have been the motive for the deadly attack.

Alfaro told investigators the altercation began after he bumped another student in the school’s cafeteria, authorities said Thursday.

Investigators say the fight Wednesday between students in a corridor at Spring High School escalated into a series of stabbings that left Broussard dead.

The three survivors were treated at a hospital and were later released.

District officials canceled classes at the high school for the rest of the week.

A statement on the Spring Independent School District website says crisis counselors will be available and additional security will be present when classes resume Monday.
