Some sad and shocking news to report out of east Texas tonight.

A teacher has died in a stabbing at a high school in Tyler.

52 year-old Todd Henry was killed this morning.

According to our reports, he was stabbed in the chest while trying to break up a fight between students.

Police say, a juvenile has been taken into custody.

Earlier today, our sister station KETK in Tyler talked to some parents who say, it was only a matter of time before something like this happened.

"I have been calling, coming up here since the first day of school, that's how long it's been going on. We have had riots and fights ever since the first day of school."

Besides being a teacher, he was a music therapist, who worked with special needs students.
