LOS ANGELES Los Angeles police say an 18-year-old who was stabbed on the campus of a San Fernando Valley high school has died.
Police spokesman Christopher Ngo says two suspects stabbed the young man soon after classes were over Wednesday at Grover Cleveland High School in Reseda.
Ngo says the student was taken to a hospital where he was declared dead. His name has not been released because relatives have yet to be notified.
Police Cmdr. Sharon Papa tells the Los Angeles Times the victim was a student at an adult school in nearby Woodland Hills.
He was stabbed on the school's handball courts.
The suspects, young men about 18 years old, ran from the campus and have not been apprehended.
Investigators may have several leads, working off a number of tips, on the suspects' possible whereabouts, reports CBS Los Angeles station KCBS-TV.
The station says the victim was once a student at Grover Cleveland, but it's not known what, if any, connection the suspects have to the school.
"I'm surprised that it was where it was, because it's a very public area," student David Legel, 16, told KCBS. "There are always a lot of people on the handball court, and it was in front of a lot of people who obviously saw it. So I think that's really surprising where it happened."
His mother told the station violence at the distinguished school is unheard of.
