Boy fatally stabbed at high school
NEW YORK — A 15-year-old boy was stabbed during an after-school robbery at a suburban high school and died at a hospital early yesterday, authorities said.
Michael Alguera was playing handball Friday with two friends on a court at Hempstead High School when they were confronted by as many as nine persons, some of them masked, police in Long Island’s Nassau County said.
The attackers, possibly gang members, robbed the boys of a cell phone and an MP3 player, then stabbed Michael in the torso, police said. He died at Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre, officers said.
The boy’s companions, ages 15 and 16, were not hurt.
No one had been arrested, police said.
