Charlestown High student stabbed on way to school

A Charlestown High School student was stabbed this morning as he walked through a neighboring housing development, in an incident that may have involved students from another school, officials said.

The student, whose name was not released, was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital following the 8:43 a.m. incident, according to Boston police spokeswoman Officer Rachel McGuire and Boston public schools spokesman Brian Ballou.

Ballou said the student's injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Ballou said school officials "believe but are not certain'' the victim argued with a student from another Boston school prior to the stabbing.

No arrests have been reported.

Police responded to the high school at 240 Medford St. at 8:43 a.m., McGuire said.


The incident is under investigation by police and the school department.

Classes were not disrupted at the high school, Ballou said.
