3 students hospitalized, 5 others arrested after stabbing outside Brockton High School and hospital

BROCKTON, Mass. — Police are investigating after three students were stabbed Friday afternoon outside Brockton High School and one person stabbed inside Good Samaritan Hospital, officials said.

The victim stabbed inside the hospital is also the suspect in the high school altercation, according to police.

Five people were arrested in connection to both the high school and hospital stabbings.

Boston 25 obtained cell phone video showing the aftermath of the double-stabbing.

Brockton police confirmed to Boston 25 News that all three students had non-life-threatening injuries after being stabbed near the high school softball field after the school released for the day around 2 p.m.

Less than an hour later, police received a call from Good Samaritan Medical Center for an assault and battery taking place. Five people were arrested at the hospital, including the one police believe is responsible for the stabbing.

Officials say both the incident at the school and the hospital are related.

A musical festival in Brockton this weekend will be under higher security after the incident.

“In the interest of ensuring guests at the musical feel comfortable on campus, there will be an additional law enforcement presence on school grounds during all three performances this weekend,” said school officials.

This remains an ongoing investigation.
