Rhode Island high school placed under lockdown after student stabs another in bathroom

An East Providence High School student was stabbed by another student Thursday afternoon, prompting a campus lockdown.

A 17-year-old boy stabbed a 16-year-old boy in one of the school’s bathrooms, East Providence Police Chief Christopher Francesconi said at a press conference.

The student who was stabbed was treated at the scene and then taken to Hasbro Children’s Hospital where he was in stable condition, Francesconi said.

Mayor Bob DaSilva praised police and school officials at a news conference Thursday afternoon.

“It breaks my heart to hear something like this happening in our community,” he said.
