Two teenage boys were stabbed Monday near Los Angeles High School in the Mid-Wilshire neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Calls about the incident near the intersection of Olympic and Rimpau boulevards came in at around 4:20 p.m., officials with the Los Angeles Fire Department told KTLA.
Officials with the Los Angeles Police Department said the stabbing was the “result of an on-campus dispute between students,” and that both victims were taken to the hospital in stable condition.
“Another senseless stabbing in our community near Los Angeles High School,” Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho said in a statement. “Our thoughts go out to the two victims and their families. All of our students deserve to go to school free of fear and full of hope.”
Carvalho added that law enforcement is investigating the incident and the district is working with the school to ensure campus safety.
Police said that it appears the victims and the suspects know each other, though, so far, no arrests have been made.
Officials urged motorists to avoid the area due to heavy traffic and street closures related to the investigation.
