Details in the shocking death of a 16-year-old student at Delaware’s Howard High School of Technology just surfaced. The three teenagers involved in that fatal physical altercation will be charged in the death of Amy Joyner-Francis, CBS News reveals.
Reports state that the three girls repeatedly assaulted Joyner-Francis in a bathroom located in the Wilmington-based school. Once officials were notified of the occurrence, Joyner-Francis was transported to a hospital by helicopter, but passed away upon arriving at the medical facility.
The incident, which happened on Apr. 21, is still under investigation, mainly surrounding what caused the fight. As previously stated on VIBE, students alluded to a supposed “love triangle” as the reason for the altercation while others said it was an ongoing “beef” Joyner-Francis planned to settle with with one of the girls.
One student who was present in the bathroom recalled how the situation escalated. “She was fighting a girl and then that’s when all these other girls started banking her — like jumping on her.”
Watch the news report below.
CBS News states that officials “are not yet ready to file charges” in the death of Amy Joyner-Francis, but given a handful of completed interviews and cellphone video footage, they’ll be able to make “a strong case” to come to a concrete decision.
