2 arrested in deadly LA high school stabbing

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police have arrested two people for a deadly stabbing at a San Fernando Valley high school.

Police on Thursday arrested a 16-year-old boy and 19-year-old Michael Carpio of Panorama City on suspicion of murder. Carpio has no public phone listing and couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Police say social media helped them track down the suspects in Wednesday afternoon's attack that killed a handball player at Grover Cleveland High School in Reseda.

The victim, 18-year-old Kevin Orellano, attended a nearby adult school.

Witnesses say he was at the high school handball court when two people approached and there was an argument. One punched Orellano, who was fighting him when the other pulled a pocket knife and stabbed him.

Orellano died at a hospital.
