Student in custody after another student was stabbed in high school

Brockton police say a 17-year-old student was in custody Friday in connection with the stabbing of another high school student. A stay-at-home order was ordered at Brockton High School shortly after 12:30 p.m. Friday after the stabbing, Brockton police said. The attacker fled the school grounds immediately after the incident, police said. The victim was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and was alert and responsive, police said. The incident is still under investigation. In October, one student brought a gun to school and another shared a photo of a magazine clip strapped to his waist. Soon after, the school installed metal detectors, but this resulted in long queues to enter the school. The school stopped using metal detectors in November.
