Police charge 2 teens in Morgantown High stabbing
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Police say a 14-year-old student who allegedly stabbed a 17-year-old at Morgantown High School has been charged with unlawful assault and possessing a weapon on school grounds.
Capt. K.P. Clark says witnesses saw the older boy attack the younger boy in a hallway Wednesday morning. The 14-year-old then stabbed the other teen multiple times in the arms and chest.
The 17-year-old has been charged with battery. Neither boy has been identified because both are juveniles.
Clark says the stab wounds weren't life-threatening. The victim's most serious injuries were to his arms, but police said an officer who works in the school administered emergency first aid that prevented major blood loss. The older boy was expected to be released from Ruby Memorial Hospital by the end of the day.
