After the incident, a school spokesman says the school was placed on lockout.  Since then, the spokesman says the lockout has been modified “to tight controls on access so that positively identified individuals with legitimate business can enter and exit.”

The violence comes a week after Valeree Schwab was fatally stabbed off-campus.  Schwab’s classmate, 16-year-old Z'Inah Brown, is facing a second-degree murder charge in that death.

Also, sources tell News 12 that today’s stabbing may be related to a fight that occurred between a number of students at a North Avenue pizzeria last night. 

Police have not confirmed that any of the incidents are related.
