A 15-year-old female student who was stabbed to death by a male intruder at a high school in California has been pictured.

Alicia Reynaga was allegedly attacked by 52-year-old Anthony Gray at Stagg High School in Stockton yesterday.

She was knifed multiple times before being rushed to hospital where she later passed away.

The school was plunged into lockdown and the suspect was arrested on suspicion of murder and taken away by cops.

Alicia’s heartbroken family held a vigil last night where her devastated cousin said: ‘I don’t understand… I really don’t.’

Police said the attack appeared to be random and they recovered a weapon from the scene.

Alicia, known as Lala, was allegedly stabbed multiple times by Gray after he drove up to Stagg High and trespassed on school grounds before targeting the student.

The suspect, whose motive is still being probed, was restrained by a school district police officer and booking into San Joaquin County jail on a murder charge.

The victim was remembered last night as a keen softball player at an emotional vigil organized by her family.

Her cousin Andrea told ABC10: ‘I don’t understand… I really don’t. She didn’t deserve this, she didn’t.

‘Whoever this person is, he has to answer to God now, this ain’t fair. It ain’t right. We’ve come together in unity.

‘She’s just so loving and kind, beautiful spirit and played softball and straight A student you know.’

Stockton Unified School District said the motive for the stabbing was ‘under investigation’.

It tweeted: ‘Stagg High School is currently under lockdown for the safety of all staff and students. A trespasser approached the campus and stabbed a student.

‘The suspect is in custody and the victim has been transported to the hospital. The motive for the attack is under investigation.’

Stockton Mayor Kevin Lincoln said last night: ‘My heart is shattered by the violence that ended the life of a young student today.’

He added: ‘No child should ever have to experience or witness such senseless acts of violence.’

Stockton Police said: ‘Detectives have arrested Anthony Gray, 52, in connection to the stabbing death of a 15-year-old female student. Gray was booked into the San Joaquin County Jail for murder.’

Superintendent John Ramirez Junior added: ‘We want to offer from all of our Stockton Unified staff, prayer to the family. I can’t even imagine that one.’

Stagg High School was set to open as normal on Tuesday morning but with an increased police presence.
