One Student Dead and Another is Injured in High School Stabbing Incident

One student was killed and another was injured Thursday morning in a stabbing at a North Carolina high school four days into the school year, officials said.

Jacksonville Public Safety Director Mike Yaniero said officers were called to Northside High School just after 7 a.m. for reports of a physical altercation between students on the campus.

The first school resource officer responded within 20 seconds, and took a student into custody, Yaniero said.

Two students were hospitalized, but one of them “succumbed to their injuries,” Yaniero said. Neither minor is being identified.

A staff member was also injured, but wasn’t stabbed, officials said.

A school official said students started being released to their parents before 9 a.m. The school is closed for the rest of the day and will have virtual class on Friday. The school will reopen Tuesday, after Labor Day.

Students returned to Northside High School, which is part of Onslow County School District, for the new school year on Monday.

  1. I agree with Grizz Mann – keep demon-crats out of any position in public education! Their actions are encouraged by the god of this world! ——————————

    ⁂►”Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, THE DEVIL, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking SOMEONE TO SEIZE UPON AND DEVOUR.” (I Peter 5:8) Amplified Bible
    • “The phrase “god of this world” (or “god of this age”) indicates that SATAN IS THE MAJOR INFLUENCE on the ideals, opinions, goals, hopes and views OF THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE. His influence also encompasses the world’s philosophies, education, and commerce. The thoughts, ideas, speculations and false religions of the world are under his control and have sprung from his lies and deceptions.”

    • “Satan is also called the “prince of the power of the air” in (Ephesians 2:2). He is the “ruler of this world” in (John 12:31). These titles and many more signify Satan’s capabilities. To say, for example, that Satan is the “prince of the power of the air” is to signify that IN SOME WAY HE RULES OVER THE WORLD AND THE PEOPLE IN IT.”

  2. When will school operators learn that their should be only one way into a school? and that should only be through metal detection doorways and armed security officers controlling people coming and leaving, GET A DAMN CLUE!!

  3. I’m calling for a ban on all knives. This sort of tragedy could have been averted if there were no knives. We need to have proper government oversight on who is able to access such dangerous weapons.
