    CA - Cindi Santana, 17, stabbed to death at South Gate high school, 30 Sept 2011


    The victim of the lunchtime stabbing at South East High School in South Gate died Friday evening, and another student has been booked on suspicion of murder, authorities said.

    The 17-year-old girl, a senior, was stabbed in the side and back, allegedly by her estranged boyfriend. She died of complications during surgery at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood about 7:45 p.m., said Los Angeles Unified School District Police Chief Steve Zipperman.

    “It appears she was his girlfriend and they were going through difficulties,” Zipperman said.

    Abraham Lopez, 18, also a senior at the school, is being held without bail, Zipperman said.

    A girl who was stabbed at South East High School in South Gate during her lunch break yesterday died from her wounds in the hospital last night.

    Cindy Santana, 17, was fatally stabbed by her ex-boyfriend Abraham Lopez, 18, according to ABC 7. He is being held without bail on murder charges.

They say Lopez punched her and choked her before he pulled out a knife and began stabbing her. A varsity football player Jorge Garcia and a female dean were also injured trying to stop Lopez's attack.
