MAGNOLIA, Ark. (AP) — Authorities say a 13-year-old was stabbed by another student during a fight at Magnolia Junior High School.
The Magnolia Police Department says the 13-year-old got into a fist fight with a 14-year-old student on Monday afternoon. Detective Todd Dew tells the Banner-News that the 14-year-old had brought a knife to school and began to stab the younger student.
Dew says the fight was broken up almost immediately.
The 13-year-old was initially treated by a school nurse then taken to Magnolia Regional Medical Center. His condition wasn't released.
The 14-year-old is facing juvenile charges of first-degree battery. A school spokesman says the junior high was on lockdown during the incident.
