According to Xinmin, this morning at 7am, a fight between two students at Shanghai Normal University Experimental High School turned lethal when one of the brawlers pulled a knife.
Says the police, the two Year Two (初二 – roughly 8th grade by American standards) students got into a fight in front of a supermarket at Laiyang Lu. The two students were 13 and 14 years old, though reports did not specify which was which.
One of the students then used a knife to stab the other one. The victim was taken to the hospital, but did not survive. The stabber is now in police custody.
Everything happened about two meters from the school. Xinmin reporters tried to contact the school, but they refused to let media inside.
