Officials say student stabbed classmate with scissors at middle school in Berkley

Student transported to hospital

BERKLEY, Mich. - On Tuesday at around 2 p.m., the Berkley Department of Public Safety responded to Anderson Middle School on a report of an injured student.

After arriving, public safety officers treated the injured student, who was later transported to a hospital in stable condition.

Based on the preliminary investigation, it appears one student stabbed another student with a pair of scissors, police said. The second student was taken into custody. 

The Berkley DPS continues to investigate the attack.

Because the investigation is ongoing and involves children, there will be no further updates at this time.
