LOS ANGELES (AP) - A 14-year-old high school student has been fatally stabbed outside an East Los Angeles middle school, and authorities are looking for another boy who attacked him.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Ryan Rouzan says the boy was stabbed in the chest shortly after classes let out Friday at David Wark Griffith Middle School. He was later declared dead at a hospital.

The suspect is described only as a male Hispanic juvenile, and it's not clear whether he was a student at the school or what kind of weapon he used in the stabbing.

The victim is a student at nearby Garfield High School. It's not known why he was at the middle school.
