HOUSTON (KHOU) -- The teen accused of killing a peer and injuring three others in a stabbing at Spring High School said very little as he appeared in court overnight, but court documents revealed more details about Wednesday's attack.

Murder charges have been filed against 17-year-old Luis Alonzo Alfaro.

In probable cause court, Alfaro only said he could not afford an attorney.

According to authorities, Alfaro's account of Wednesday's events started when he said he bumped shoulders with the victim, 17-year-old Joshua Broussard. The incident turned into an argument, which led to a fist fight.

Alfaro allegedly told detectives he pulled out a pocket knife and swung it in a back-and-forth motion as he covered his face with his other arm. Broussard died at the scene, and four other students were injured.

Authorities said the suspect then tried to run away but was caught just moments later.

In court on Thursday, his bond was set at $150,000.

Chelitha Brady's daughter saw the whole thing and described it to her mom in a call that made her heart stop.  

"She said, 'Mom, the young man just fell dead on me,'" Brady said. "She said, "Momma, it was some guys, they went to fightin' and they went to stabbin... You just got to come, you just got to come.'"

Brady managed to get inside the school to check on her daughter before it was locked down. She said she saw the victim's body lying in a hallway.

The most seriously injured victim was 16-year-old Deaveon Brazil. He was flown by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Texas Trauma Institutel. Brazil, a junior, was upgraded from critical to good condition Wednesday afternoon and released.

Two other students were taken by ambulance to Memorial Hermann and Houston Northwest Medical Center. Both are expected to be OK.
