Wednesday afternoon, there was a shooting and stabbing on the campus of McKinley High School.
The incident, in the parking lot of the school, left a student stabbed and a security guard shot. According to reports, both are alive: the security guard received treatment at ECMC and is now home. The student remains in stable condition at Oishei Children’s Hospital.
“A student was stabbed in the chest and abdomen,” The Buffalo News reported. “Other students at the scene pulled the bleeding boy into the building and tried to help him, applying pressure to his wounds while they waited for police and paramedics to arrive.”
Due to this incident, the school shifted to learning remotely Thursday and Friday.
Following an armed-person report, Buffalo State College issued a shelter-in-place notice to their entire campus Wednesday evening. This was lifted at 6:45 p.m. and all classes in-person and online were canceled for the rest of the evening.
According to the Buffalo News, “investigators are looking for two suspects in connection with the incident. As of Thursday afternoon, no arrests had been made.”
Buffalo Public School Superintendent Kriner Cash, Ph.D. said that the school will have a “reset.”
