UPDATE: Boy Stabbed With Knife At Woodland Middle School

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - At approximately 2:20 p.m. this afternoon the Coeur d'Alene Police Department and medical emergency personnel responded to a 911 call made by staff at Woodland Middle School as an altercation between two students resulted in one student suffering multiple stab wound injuries.

Teachers immediately intervened and the injured student received medical attention onsite and was transported to Kootenai Medical Center. The student is being treated for non life threatening injuries.

Woodland Middle School went into emergency lockdown mode for approximately fifteen minutes to maintain the safety of students and staff as officers secured the building. School buses were held at the school to await the students and some bus routes may have been delayed ten to fifteen minutes.

The student suspect was located by police a short distance away from school and was taken into custody. The investigation is ongoing at this time. The district sent out two parent updates to its Woodland families this afternoon through the district's family access communication system. School officials have also initiated the district's Crisis Team to be on hand at Woodland Middle School Monday morning to provide support to students and staff.

The Crisis Team is made up of counselors and school psychologists from across the school district, expertly trained in dealing with situations such as this. It is the district's number one priority to maintain the safety of its students and staff and to also provide ongoing support, after a crisis, for those who may need it.

It was initially thought the weapon used in today's incident was a pencil but officers determined the weapon to be a pocket knife. Coeur d'Alene School District has a zero tolerance on weapons of any kind in its schools.

No other details are available at this time.
