Student Stabbed At Kuna High School
Kuna Police have arrested and charged a 16-year-old Kuna High School student with aggravated battery after a stabbing Thursday afternoon outside of the school gym. The Ada County Sheriff’s Office says the 16-year-old stabbed another student, a 15-year-old boy, after an argument. A friend of the 15-year-old victim said the fight started during school, but escalated after classes had let out for the day. Police say at some point in the argument, the suspect asked a student bystander if he had any scissors. Police say not knowing the suspect’s intentions, that a student bystander gave the suspect a 5-inch folding knife he had in his pocket. That’s when the stabbing occurred. Investigators say the suspect stabbed the victim once in the upper abdomen. The injured student was taken by ambulance to St. Luke’s Meridian Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Police say he got stitches and was released Thursday evening. It’s possible the suspect could face more charges or enhancements because of laws about violent acts on school property. An Ada County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson says the student who gave the knife to that suspect faces punishment from Kuna High School.
