SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Police say a teenager has been arrested in the stabbing death of a former classmate outside a store in San Francisco.

Police Chief Greg Suhr identified the suspect Wednesday as a teenage boy who had attended middle school with the victim. His name was not released because he’s a minor.

Officials say 14-year-old Rashawn Williams was fatally stabbed outside a corner store in the city’s Mission District Tuesday night. Williams, who had just become a freshman at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory School, later died at a hospital.

The school notified students and parents about the killing Wednesday. Williams was planning to play on the school’s freshman football team.

Suhr said Williams also had recently taken part in the police force’s summer jobs program and described him as a “great kid.”
