"School Shooting Map

Student charged with Murder of another Student at Reagan High School

 

AUSTIN -- A 16-year-old boy was charged with murder after stabbing to death his ex-girlfriend (Ortralla Mosley) in the halls of Austin's Reagan High School, police said Saturday.

Since Mosley's death, school officials have said they were baffled by the tragedy. But parents, the Rev. Sterling Lands of Greater Calvary Baptist Church, and a prosecutor with the Travis County district attorney's office said school officials had reports of violence by this student against female students [Learning what to look for - "Early Warning Signs" ].

On Friday, school board President Doyle Valdez announced in a statement that the district will review how Reagan officials "handled events leading up to the tragedy to ascertain whether more could have been done to prevent the incident." [Assessment Training for Early Warning Signs]  The review will include an overall look at violence on campus.

Austin police spokesman Kevin Buchman identified the victim as Ortralla Mosley, 15. She was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at Brackenridge Hospital on Friday afternoon.

The Travis County district attorney's office will determine whether to charge the boy as a juvenile or adult, Buchman said.

The boy was taken after the incident to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries suffered during the stabbing, said Austin Independent School District spokesman Andy Welch. Emergency officials said the boy's wounds appeared to be self-inflicted.

Authorities said the stabbing occurred on the second floor of the school, outside some classrooms in the mall area.

An English teacher said the girl -- a cheerleader and popular straight-A student -- and the boy had broken up Thursday. Both students were sophomores.

It was the first such student fatality during school hours at any Austin Independent School District campus, school officials said, and extra counselors were scheduled to be at Reagan High School Monday.

School board President Doyle Valdez said none of Austin's 12 high schools has metal detectors. However, a school police officer patrols the halls of each high school.

Police said the slaying was Austin's seventh murder of the year.
