Student Injured in Stabbing at School

By  | 

A stabbing at Carver Middle School in Meridian sent a child to the hospital Wednesday with serious injuries.

The stabbing that involved two students happened around 1:40 p.m. as students were changing classes.

One of those students was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The other was arrested by Meridian police.

Interim superintendent, Dr. Randy McCoy, said a teacher disarmed the student who had the knife.

"We have a procedure where you might call it a 'red button' is pressed and that springs into action, that a teacher needs appropriate help," said McCoy.

School officials say neither of the students had prior disciplinary issues.
