Stabbing at Bronx school leaves three injured
A stabbing Tuesday at Evander Childs High School in the Bronx has left three people injured, two of whom are students.
Police say the two students who were taken to Jacobi Medical Center are listed in serious condition but their injuries do not appear life threatening. The third victim?s injuries are reported not serious and hospital treatment was not needed. The victims are said to be 14, 17 and 19. Police say the incident started around 2:48 p.m. on a city bus. According to authorities, those involved with the stabbing got off the bus and proceeded to inflict harm across the street from the school?s perimeters.
Evander Childs High School does have a violent past. The school was formerly on the mayor?s list of the most dangerous city schools. However, in July Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R-NY) and other officials said the school should be scratched from the list due to a 31 percent decrease in reported crime.
