The internet has gone wild after news broke about the death of a 15-year-old girl; Amy Inita Joyner, who was beaten to death by her schoolmates today.

The brawl that claimed Amy’s life was over a boy, reports ABC Philadelphia. It was Wilmington’s Mayor, Denis Williams who announced Inita’s death in a press conference at Howard High School, saying: “I’m so upset that the young lady lost her life today. Things like this shouldn’t happen. My heart bleeds for the family, the kids that go to this school, administrators and our city.”
Delaware Online reports that Inita was rushed to A.I DuPont Hospital for Children in critical condition. She was pronounced dead on the way to the hospital.
The fight broke out after the bell rang and the students were in their classrooms, and the school was dismissed after the incident. Delaware Online reports that police in Wilmington have taken two female students (Twitter handles are: @_Triinityy and @Zi_Nasty) in for questioning in relation to Amy’s death.
One witness to the assault told ABC Philadelphia, “She was fighting a girl, and then that’s when all these other girls started banking her — like jumping her — and she hit her head on the sink.” Sources also say that students from the school recorded the fight on their phones instead of intervening to save the young girl’s life.
We hope justice is served and Amy rests in perfect peace.
