LA MARQUE, Texas — A middle school student was stabbed several times Tuesday during a fight at the end of the day, according to Texas City Independent School District officials.
Officials said two girls got into a fight minutes before the last bell of the day at Giles Middle School.
They said one of the students pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed the other student several times.
The mother of the stabbing victim took her daughter to an area hospital for treatment. District officials said the girl didn't "require hospitalization."
The other student was taken into custody and is expected to be charged, officials said.
It's unclear why the fight started.
District officials said metal detectors were at the school Tuesday, but didn't say if all of the students were forced to go through them.
