Amy Inita Joyner-Francis was murdered in the girl’s bathroom at  Howard High School of Technology in Wilmington, Delaware last Thursday as a gang of girls attacked her and slammed her head into one of the sinks.  After the attack, she was airlifted to A.I. DuPont Children’s Hospital, in critical condition, where she was later pronounced dead.  The fight was allegedly over a boy.

This is the horrific moment high school teen Amy Joyner was allegedly beaten to death by a group of bullies in the school bathrooms

Amy was flown by helicopter to A.I. DuPont Children's Hospital in critical condition. She was later pronounced dead at the hospital

The authorities have questioned three unnamed girls and they have all been suspended from school.  No word on arrests and charges yet, but Mayor Dennis Williams said that the girls realize they are facing many years in prison for their act.  There is a cell phone video of the attack, which has not yet been released to the public.  The school sent all the kids home after the attack was discovered and parents were informed of the early release, but were not told why.

Her schoolmates tweeted their disbelief and regret:

Actress Paige Hurd tweeted that she is 'hurt' by the loss of such a young life and her 'heart is so heavy for her and her family' 

Another user tweeted about the plight of a world where a teenager 'gets murdered by her classmates in a school bathroom while other classmates record it'

Some said the worst part about Amy's senseless death is to know that 'we won't learn from this'  

And others are calling for justice to be served against the girls who are responsible for Amy's death
