A knife attack darkens first day of school in North Carolina

One person was killed and two were injured Thursday in an apparent stabbing on the fourth day of class at an eastern North Carolina high school, police said.

Jacksonville Police Chief Mike Yaniero told reporters at a news conference that two minors were taken to Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune with injuries, and one later died.

He said that the attack at Northside High School in Jacksonville appeared to be a stabbing but that the investigation was ongoing.

A teacher was also injured, but not stabbed, and received onsite medical treatment, he said.

Officials have commented that there’s no ongoing threat to the public after this attack.
