Tulsa Police are investigating the death of a Rogers High School student, Saturday, March 2.

Police officers were called to 1800 N. Atlanta around 8:45 a.m. on a report of a stabbing.

According to the Tulsa Police Homicide Unit, 18-year-old Gabrielle "Gabby" Bledsoe was pronounced dead on the scene.

A family member told KTUL.com that Gabby lived at the house with her mother.

Gabby's mother had spent the night at a relative's home and on her return, discovered Gabrielle dead, according to the report.

Andrena Carroll, Gabby's aunt, described her as a sweet girl who loved to joke.

"All the time. It's all she did. Tell jokes," Carroll said, "If you were sad in any kind of way, she'd come in and just get everybody going. So, she was a lot of fun. Just an innocent child."

Gabby's family say she was a straight-A student, played basketball and track, and loved pictures.

Details of her death are unknown at this time, however officers are on scene investigating it as a homicide.

A cousin of Gabby's stated her disbelief in the situation in a Facebook post.

"I cannot believe this has happened to [Gabby]," Bledsoe's cousin writes, "You were the happiest person I have ever met & my big cousin that always kept a smile on her face."

Carroll stated that people need to love and enjoy their families while they have them.

"Just love your family. Love them while they're here, because you never know when they're going to be taken away from you," Carroll said.

The homicide unit have been questioning several individuals, but all have been released while the case is being investigated.
