Investigation into Mt. Vernon school stabbing
A crisis team is on-hand for students and faculty at the Nelson Mandela High School after two students were allegedly stabbed by a third student at the Mount Vernon school yesterday afternoon.
The school was locked down after the incident at around 2 p.m. and one student was arrested. School officials say a disagreement over a basketball game sparked the fight.
