MILFORD, Conn. – Just hours before her junior prom, a 16-year-old girl was stabbed to death inside a Connecticut high school Friday morning. Police said that a 16-year-old boy has been taken into custody.

CBS New York reports that a boy stabbed Maren Sanchez because she wouldn’t go to Friday night’s prom with him, according to a student at the high school. Police have not confirmed that information.

Emergency responders were called to Jonathan Law High School in Milford, part of New Haven County, just after 7 a.m. Friday to aid the victim. Sanchez was taken to Bridgeport Hospital where she later died, according to Police Chief Keith Mello.

“Our investigators are conducting a large number of interviews and looking at other measures as well to determine not just why this happened, but how it happened,” Mello said.
