Bad day gets worse
Friday was an even more violent day in the city schools than I'd realized. In addition to the fatal stabbing at Lemmel, a mother was arrested and charged with attacking a teacher at Matthew Henson Elementary. The Sun reports today on that incident, as well as the charges filed against 14-year-old Timothy Oxendine in the murder of Markel Williams, 15.
UPDATE: Thanks to Carey Hall for correcting us on the last time a student was killed on school grounds during the school day. There was a fatal shooting outside Lake Clifton in January 2001.
