Hartford – School Stabbing Incident
A student was seriously hurt in a stabbing incident in Hartford yesterday morning.
At approximately 10:45 a.m., reports came in of an incident inside the premises of Weaver High School on Granby Street. Firefighters and paramedics were quickly dispatched on-site and discovered a 17-year-old male who sustained a chest injury after another 17-year-old student stabbed him. The victim has since been transported to St. Francis Hospital where he is listed as critical but stable. The attacker immediately left the school after the incident but was eventually apprehended at his residence. All concerned agencies/departments have since released statements regarding the situation. The case is currently under investigation, and updates will be provided when new info becomes available.
