A stabbing victim from the Feb. 14 after-school fight at Beckendorff Park has died from his wounds.

The Harris County Sheriff’s office said Marlon Robinson, 17, died Sunday at a local hospital. A charge filed on a juvenile has been upgraded to murder.

Robinson was one of two high school students stabbed in the fight at Beckendorff Park, 1815 Katyland Drive. Authorities said the fight began shortly after class dismissal that day.

Robinson and another victim were taken by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital, deputies said after the incident. Another student, a suspect in the stabbing, sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. Seven people, including the two stabbing victims, were injured, deputies said.

In a statement, the Katy Independent School District said three individuals have been charged and one has been arrested for their involvement in the fight.

The Harris County Sheriff’s office is leading the investigation. Citizens with any details regarding this incident and the charges should contact that office.

The district said previously that it is working with law enforcement to investigate the incident. Katy ISD police will also be assigned to patrol the area until the investigation has been completed.

The district said previously that students who were involved in the incident will be disciplined in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct and Discipline Management Plan, as well as be subject to any potential criminal consequences.
