MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – One student was hospitalized and another arrested following a stabbing Tuesday at a Twin Cities high school.

The Bloomington Police Department says officers were called to Thomas Jefferson High School around 12:30 p.m. on a stabbing involving two female students. Police say the incident occurred in the hallway near the front of the school.

During the incident, the school went through normal lockdown procedures. Police say the school resource officer, along with school staff, reacted quickly and separated the two students.

One of the girls was brought to HCMC with multiple stab wounds, police said. The extent of her injuries is not known, but she’s in stable condition.

The other girl was taken into custody by the Bloomington Police Department. Police say a knife was recovered from the suspect.

Students tell WCCO there were two fights Monday at the school, but it is not clear if Tuesday’s fight is connected to those.
