NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Grief counselors were on hand at a middle school in the Bronx Thursday after a 14-year-old boy was stabbed to death outside of the school.

A student is facing murder charges as an adult in the stabbing death of his classmate at I.S. 117 in the Mount Hope section of The Bronx.

Noel Estevez and Timothy Crump, both 14, got into a dispute outside of the school on Morris Avenue at about 3 p.m. on Wednesday when Estevez allegedly stabbed Crump several times in the stomach, according to police.

Estevez, of the Bronx, is in police custody. The weapon -- a kitchen knife -- was recovered at the scene.

Responders rushed Crump to Bronx Lebanon Hospital in critical condition, but he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police are investigating what might have lead to the stabbing.

Unconfirmed reports indicate Estevez retaliated after he was beaten and robbed by Crump a few weeks ago. Investigators are looking into the possibility that Estevez was teased by Crump over his mother's recent arrest on drug charges.

A family friend, Marisol Perez, said he was repeatedly bullied for months. She also said he struggled with depression after his brother died last year. Estevez purportedly tried to kill himself, was admitted to the hospital in May, and only recently got out. Documents indicate the 14-year-old suffers from multiple mood disorders including depression and bipolar disorder.

Estevez faces second-degree murder charges and second-degree manslaughter charges.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
