NAPLES, Fla. — A 14-year-old high school student was arrested on Monday after he fatally stabbed a fellow student at a school bus stop in Golden Gate Estates.

Jorge Saavedra was charged with manslaughter. Deputies say he stabbed 16-year-old Dylan Nuno as the two exited their school bus. Nuno was then transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The Associated Press reports that investigators interviewed six students who were on the bus when the stabbing occurred. Grief counselors were scheduled to be available at the teens’ high school on Tuesday.

Saavedra’s arrest report and photograph will reportedly be released when they become available.

    I been a school bus driver for 20years and it is going to come down to no child will be able to bring a bookbag on the bus at all. The chilern that are good will suffer. I fill bad for the driver that she or he could not prevent this from happen on the bus, you can only do so much when you are driving, you can't see everything,you wish you could but you can't. That is why I think that every school bus should have a aide riding with them all the time.I send my prayers to the parents of student that lots a child on that bus.This is for the school bus driver I send my prayers to you.
