NASSAU, BAHAMAS — An 11th grade Government High School (GHS) student was stabbed to death in a corridor of the school campus and another was injured following an altercation with two other two students during their lunch break.
Between 200 and 300 grade 11 students, staff and administrators, as well as security personnel, were on the campus at the time to facilitate the sitting of exams.
When Eyewitness News arrived on the scene, an ambulance on campus was pulling off with sirens blaring.
Scores of officers could be seen in the distance.
Students remained in their classrooms under lockdown.
Police Press Liaison Officer Assistant Superintendent Audley Peters told the media two male students had been in the corridor speaking during their lunch break when two other male students approached them.
He said an altercation ensued and the students produced “edged tools”, which led to the two students being stabbed.
He said police could not say if the victims were the aggressors in the incident.
