OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Authorities say a 14-year-old boy who used a knife to attack a female classmate during a school assembly in central Oklahoma didn’t have any record as a troublemaker.
Luther Police Chief David Randall said Friday that investigators are interviewing staff at students following the Thursday attack at Luther High School. Randall says a trend has emerged from the interviews that could point to a motive, but he declined to elaborate.
However he and Superintendent Barry Gunn say the boy has no history of trouble at the school.
Randall says the 14-year-old victim remains hospitalized in Oklahoma City and is expected to fully recover. He says she suffered numerous stab wounds and was only acquainted with the boy.
Randall says the boy “blurted out some statements that made no sense” after he was taken into custody.
