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.

    The Wildlife Conservation Society's zoos in New York City have debut some interesting new animals in their habitats in recent weeks. The flagship Bronx Zoo is now home to a herd of endangered Turkmenian flare-horned markhor, a species of mountain goat native to Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Some river otter pups are getting to know their home in Prospect Park, and the Queens Zoo has some new majestic American bison.

    A Brooklyn woman who is seven months pregnant released photos that she said show an NYPD officer putting her in a choke hold as she was being arrested for grilling on the sidewalk outside her home.  It's the latest in a string of reported choke holds by police officers. The move is not allowed under NYPD policy.  Miller was expected to meet with Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson on Tuesday to seek charges against police.

    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?
