As police continue to investigate the fistfight at a Palmdale intermediate school that left a 13-year-old student dead, community members called Monday for the immediate expulsion of the surviving 14-year-old boy. Some residents also criticized school officials for dismissing race as a possible motive in the fight at Juniper Intermediate School. Stephan Corson, who is black, died Friday after the fight with another eighth-grade student, who is white.

Shoulder to shoulder the boys in the Chatsworth Chiefs jerseys sat, wiping their eyes. The church seemed a strange place to be for members of the pee-wee football team. It was only a few weekends ago that their buddy Stephan Corson thundered down the field, a football squeezed between his hands. Now he lay in front of them in a cream-colored suit, white roses on his chest, impossibly silent. "He wanted to go pro," said teammate Desean Jackson, 13.

The 13-year-old boy who died after a fistfight at his middle school Friday has been identified as Steven Corson of Palmdale, authorities said Saturday. Corson and another eighth-grader got into a fight after class at Juniper Intermediate School. As a teacher's aide tried to break them up, Steven fell and hit his head on the sidewalk, school officials said. He went into cardiac arrest and was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

DiNoto was troubled by what he saw as the school's failure to give the farm owners' side of the dispute.
