HOUSTON (KTRK/CNN) – A Texas teenager has died after reportedly being stabbed in a fight over a snack.
Brian Angel was an eighth-grader at Jane Long Academy in southwest Houston.
According to Brian’s friends – and police – an argument inside a convenience store after school Wednesday led to his death.
"I mean, just over a brownie. It’s ridiculous,” said Brian’s friend Sergio Munoz.
The fight ended with Brian being stabbed in the head. He died Friday in a hospital, the same day the 14-year-old accused of stabbing him was arrested.
“The kid, I think he was not healthy mentally, and [that] caused him to pull out his knife and just cut him," Munoz said.
Brian’s parents, sister and three brothers are devastated. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with his funeral expenses.
The eighth-grade classmate accused of stabbing Brian is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Because he’s a juvenile, his name is not being released.
