A high school student in Alexandria was killed on Tuesday in a stabbing incident that was part of a fight involving dozens of young men.
Alexandria police said the 18-year-old was stabbed in a fight at the Bradley Shopping Center, on King Street, a few hundred feet from both campuses.
He was taken to the hospital, where he died of his injuries.
Alexandria City Public Schools has placed the King Street Campus and Minnie Howard at Alexandria City High School in a “building secured” state.
School officials issued the case out of extreme caution for the safety and security of students and staff after the fighting that was reported nearby.
Capt. Courtney Plantin, of the Alexandria Police, said police were called to report a fight around 12:25 p.m., and 30 to 50 people were found to be in an “active fight.”
Police have not released the student’s name, and said they have no information on the suspect or motive. They are asking anyone with more information to call them at 703-746-6819.
No one was allowed in or out of the two main campuses of Alexandria City High School on Tuesday afternoon.
The end of school on the King Street and Minnie Howard campuses has been postponed because the “safe building” status has not been raised until 3:15 p.m.
Students were allowed out in smaller groups, the school system said, and after-school activities were cancelled.
