OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)– A young boy stood and repeatedly stabbed a 14-year-old girl during an assembly at an Oklahoma high school on the very first day of classes Thursday and she was airlifted to a hospital, a regional sheriff’s spokesman said.
The lady is expected to make a full healing.
Mark Opgrande, spokesman for the Oklahoma County constable, said the unknown 14-year-old suspect is in custody.
“They were having an all-school assembly … when for some factor a male trainee apparently stood up and started stabbing a female trainee. Today we don’t have a motive,” Opgrande said.
Opgrande said the lady, who also was not determined, was in steady condition after being stabbed “multiple times … five, 6, 7 times” by the young boy at Luther High School. Opgrande stated he did not know exactly what weapon was used.
Luther Cops Chief David Randall stated there was no recognized relationship between the young boy and girl or any sign that they knew each other.
Randall and Superintended Barry Gunn state the kid has no history of difficulty at the school.
Randall stated the kid “was stopped and apprehended by trainees and staff” following the incident and was later on jailed for assault and battery with a deadly weapon. He stated the young boy was transferred to the Luther Police Department and that his father asked that a lawyer be present prior to he was questioned.
However, Randall said that the kid made statements while he was being transferred.
“During the drive, he blurted out some statements that made no sense,” Randall said. “He stated he was worked with by someone but that he might not discuss it.”
School officials did not right away return telephone call for remark.
The school has simply over than 800 students, according to Oklahoma State Department of Education online records. Luther is a town of about 1,200 people about 25 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.
