WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (AP) — A southwest Florida teen is being charged with murder after authorities say he fatally stabbed a high school student.

Pasco County Sheriff’s authorities say Cleave Gittens and Tuvarrion Sirmons got into a fight at a clubhouse in their neighborhood Friday. Authorities said 18-year-old Gittens stabbed 16-year-old Sirmons. It’s unclear what prompted the stabbing. No other details were released.

A crisis team with grief counselors will be at Zephyrhills High School where Sirmons attended on Monday.
