A 13-Year-Old Maine Middle School Student Was Stabbed During a Wrestling Meet
According to the Lewiston Sun Journal, a wrestling meet in Maine turned scary on Friday afternoon when a student was stabbed.
The Sun Journal is reporting that police and medical personnel were called to the Mountain Valley Middle School in Mexico, Maine for reports of an injured student.
As they were en route to the scene, it was reported that two teenagers had been in am altercation, resulting in one of the kids being stabbed in the shoulder.
By the time emergency crews arrived on scene at the school the two teens had been separated by others. Med-Care Ambulance arrived on the scene to find a 13-year-old student with a 'superficial' stab wound to the shoulder. The stabbing apparently happened during a wrestling meet being hosted at the school.
Following the response by emergency crews, the wrestling meet continued on as previously planned. Currently, no names have been released as those involved are minors. Additionally, it's unclear if either of the two teens involved will be facing any charges.
School Principal Cheryl Gurney, posted on the school's website in part,
“There was an incident tonight at the wrestling meet held at MVMS. The local police responded quickly and controlled the situation. They made sure the building was safe and there was not further risk. The wrestling meet is now proceeding as scheduled.”
