Delaware High School Students Dies After Fight With Other Students.
A 16-year-old Delaware high school student died Thursday morning after a confrontation with other teens in the bathroom of her school, according to city and school officials.

The student, a sophomore at Howard High School of Technology in Wilmington, was 16-years-old. She was involved in an altercation with two other teens, said Alexandra M. Coppadge, the director of communications for the Wilmington mayor's office. The altercation then turned physical, she said.

The altercation happened in a main floor girls bathroom around 8:15 a.m., just before classes were about to start, said Dr. Stanley Spoor, principal of Howard High School of Technology

Coppadge could not confirm what sparked the fight but said it was not gang related.

Medics performed CPR on the student on campus, ABC station WPVI-TV in Philadelphia reported. She was airlifted to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The cause of death has not been released.

Two students are being questioned in relation to the incident by police, Spoor said. Their identities have not been released.

Wilmington Mayor Dennis Williams said his heart was “broken” in a press conference.

"I'm so upset that the young lady lost her life today,” Williams said. “Things like this shouldn't happen. My heart bleeds for the family, the kids that go to this school, administrators and our city.”

Victoria Gehrt, superintendent of the New Castle County Vocational Technical School District, called the student’s death an “unforeseen and unbelievable tragedy.”

“I’d like to reinforce to all that Howard [High School of Technology] is a safe school for our students.

Remaining students at the school were kept in class following the incident and were released at 10:15 a.m., Spoor said in the press conference.

The Wilmington Police Department is conducting an investigation.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
