Two students were hospitalized after being stabbed to death at John Marshall High School in Los Feliz on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.
The stabbing happened around 3:30 p.m., said Nina Buranasombati, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles School Police Department. One person of interest was arrested and released; Buranasombati could not say whether the person was a student. No weapon was seized, Buranasombati said.
School Police Deputy Chief Glenn Besunder told The Times that officers from the Los Angeles Police Department were also called and initially arrested the individual in question for questioning, but the school police decided not to detain anyone. No one was in custody as of Wednesday evening.
The victims are students, the incident occurred on campus, and school police officers were called around 3:38 p.m., Besunder said.
According to the school’s website, classes end at 3:37 p.m. most days.
The investigation has been turned over to school police and school officials, the deputy principal said.
The incident arose from an argument, Besunder said. Investigators questioned the victims at the hospital early Wednesday evening.
Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to call the School Police Department’s Investigative Services Division at (213) 202-8621.
Anonymous tips can be submitted to Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
