NASHVILLE — April 30, 1996 - 5:05 p.m. EDT
Officials at Nash Central Junior High School say three students and one teacher were injured when a fight broke out on school property.
The fight broke out within minutes of dismissal, at about 2:47 p.m., when a male student approached a group of students. An argument reportedly ensued, and the student who approached the group pulled out a box-cutter and started slashing at the others.
Two boys received cuts, one on the face, the other on an arm. A female student and a teacher who was trying to break up the fight were also injured.
All four were taken to a hospital, treated and released. All are in good condition.
The attacker is now in custody at the Nash County Sheriff's Department. Reportedly, he had just been readmitted to school after having been suspended for fighting.
School officials say the fight was motivated by a personal vendetta and was part of an ongoing feud
