A student girl, 16, was killed after fight in the bathroom at a high school in Wilmington


No charges have been yet filed. “She treated us like family and we treated her like family, and it hurts our hearts we can’t ever see her anymore,” her classmates say. A vigil was organized Thursday night. Classes resumed Friday but grief counselors and other district officials were meeting with students. “This not a young lady who was involved in street activity. This is an honor roll student, manager of the wrestling team, whose mother and father were very engaged in her life, as well as her siblings,” said Councilwoman Sherry Dorsey Walker, who is serving as a spokesperson for Joyner-Francis’ family. “We need to get prayer back in our schools, we need to cover our babies by any means necessary, we’re losing too many,” said the Rev. Margaret Guy.
