Howard High School of Technology in Wilmington, Delaware is mourning the loss of another student.

He was a 9th-grader at Howard High School of Technology, and had graduated from Nativity Prep just last year.

"This is, I guess, a safe place to feel all of the things, and be with each other, especially in the face of a city that isn't safe or doesn't feel safe at the moment," said Paul Webster, principal.

There have been no arrests in the case, but sources tell Action News they do know the name of the alleged gunman.

The shooting came just weeks after another Howard student, 16-year-old Amy Joyner Francis, died after a fight in one of the school's bathroom.
