Fatal High School Stabbing Leaves One Dead, Two Wounded

WRAL reported that a stabbing occurred on the campus of Northside High School located at 365 Commons Dr. S, Jacksonville, NC 28546. 

Moments before 7 a.m. on Thursday, September 1, 2022, a school resource officer responded to a physical altercation between two students. Two students were stabbed in the fight and taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. However, one of the students died from their injuries. A teacher also suffered minor injuries during the attack. 

Police have arrested a 16-year-old student, who is suspected to be the attacker. Two additional students were arrested, and others involved will suffer school disciplinary action. Police have not confirmed the attack was gang-related but said it is too early in the investigation to rule it out.

Justice For High School Stabbing Victims

Attorney contributor Kristen Beightol represents victims and their families involved in stabbings and other violent crimes in North Carolina. As an experienced school stabbing victim lawyer, Kristen recently discussed the legal options available to victims stabbed on a high school campus. 

"There are laws that require schools to provide adequate protection for school employees and their students. Security cameras and patrolling school resource officers are just a couple of the security measures a school can implement to reduce the risk of preventable dangers. If a school fails to provide proper protection on its campus, it may be held liable in the instance of a school stabbing."

"Furthermore, if the school district failed to increase security despite knowing that violence was on the rise, a crime may be considered foreseeable. A school could conduct bag checks or install metal detectors to minimize dangers. In cases where negligent security is proven to be a factor, and the stabbing was foreseeable, victims or their families may be entitled to compensation."
