The school was put on lockdown following the stabbing. Stockton police revealed the fatal incident happened around 11 AM on Monday. Soon after the girl was stabbed to death, a Stockton Unified School District officer detained Gray.

The teen was taken to a hospital, where she later died.

Police say Gray went to the front parking lot, parked his vehicle, walked into the school, and stabbed the girl. "It's a tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family,” Ramirez said.

The family identified the victim as Alicia Reynaga and a vigil has already been held at the school. KCRA reports that Alicia was an outgoing, athletic student who played for the school's softball team.
