2 in custody after stabbing at Bulkeley High

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A 15-year-old Bulkeley High School sophomore is listed in serious condition at a local hospital after police say he was stabbed by a student from a nearby expulsionary school.

“We do have two people in custody who are people of interest at this point; they’re juveniles,” Hartford deputy police chief Brian Foley said.

The incident happened about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at Bulkeley High. The sophomore was transported to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center where he is listed in serious condition but is conscious and expected to survive, Foley said.

Police said preliminary investigation revealed that a student from the nearby expulsionary school New Vision School came to Bulkeley and stabbed one student in the abdomen.

Public school officials say the incident happened in the rear of the school near the bus drop-off and pickup. The school says it happened very quickly and not many students witnessed the incident.

“This is definitely an isolated incident and there will be increased security tomorrow,” Foley said. “We don’t anticipate more problems.”

A heavy police presence remains at the school.
