SPRING (September 9, 2013)—Security was tight Monday as classes resumed at Spring High School following a knife fight last week that left one student dead and three others injured.
Metal detectors were in place Monday morning as students returned to school.
The campus was closed after last Wednesday's attack, which left Joshua Devon Broussard, 17, dead.
Harris County sheriff's deputies arrested Luis Alonzo Alfaro, 17, who remained jailed Monday, charged with murder.
His bond is set at $140,000.
Investigators say gang rivalry was behind the fight in a corridor.
Principal Donna Ullrich announced that six meetings are planned with parents to discuss school safety and security.
Meanwhile Monday, hundreds of mourners attended a funeral service for Broussard at Spring Baptist Church.
More than 70 law enforcement officers were on hand to provide security after a fight broke out and then shots were fired outside the church Sunday night, disrupting a memorial service.
The gunfire sent teenagers and others scrambling for cover in the pews.
No one was hurt and on arrests were made.
