WOBURN, Mass. — Classes have resumed at Kennedy Middle School in Woburn after a reported stabbing sent the school into a shelter in place mode.
Officials say just before 8 a.m., a fight broke out between two students and escalated when one student slashed another with a knife.
Police say the 11-year-old assailant was taken into custody and a small knife was seized. A 12-year-old victim was taken to a local hospital to be treated for superficial wounds.
The 11-year-old will face discipline from the school district, but will not be charged.
In a joint statement, Mayor Scott Galvin, Police Chief Robert Rufo and Superintendent of Schools Matthew Cowley say the incident was not random and there is no danger to the school:
