KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City police say a middle school student who was stabbed reportedly by another student at school has died of his injuries.
The stabbing occurred Tuesday morning in a bathroom at Northeast Middle School. Police spokeswoman Donna Drake says another student, also a boy, was detained after the stabbing. Drake said the two students had some type of confrontation but the motive for the stabbing is still being investigated.
