Lewis is being charged as an adult with one count of first-degree murder, The Detroit News reported.
A school resource officer rushed into a classroom at Fitzgerald High School around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday after hearing screams coming from the room, Kern County Sheriff Bill Dwyer said earlier this week. When he arrived, he found Gibson injured amid a classroom full of students.
Dwyer said the officer attempted to perform CPR on Gibson, but she was pronounced dead at a hospital an hour after the stabbing was reported.
Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith told reporters after Friday's arraignment that the stabbing started and ended so quickly that even if the school resource officer had been in the classroom, "it may still have not been stopped," according to the Detroit Free Press.
Dwyer described both Lewis and Gibson as straight-A students who had not been in trouble before Wednesday’s attack.
