Girl, 15, Charged With Stabbing Schoolmate

CHICAGO (CBS) — A 15-year-old girl now stands charged with a felony for allegedly stabbing a schoolmate with a pair of scissors at Hirsch Metro High School in the Grand Crossing neighborhood.

CBS 2 reports the girl is charged with felony aggravated battery in the Tuesday morning incident. As she is a juvenile, her name is not being released.

Around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, two female students got into a fight inside the school, and one stabbed the other with a pair of scissors.

The victim was taken from the school, at 7740 S. Ingleside Ave., to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. The girl was initially reported in critical condition, but her condition had stabilized by late Tuesday morning.

Senior Brandon Shelvin said he saw the accused stabber being led away by security guards.

“The one girl who did the stabbing, she had scratches on her arm, scratches on her face,” Shelvin said.

In a statement Tuesday afternoon, Chicago Public Schools officials said, “We are working closely with both CPD in their investigation of this incident and the principal to keep parents informed of the situation and ensure them that all appropriate steps have been taken to provide a safe environment for students remaining at the school.”

    another reason to demand ‘school scissors’ you know – the short ones with blunted tips that can only cut one piece of paper at a time


    My relative said there were a lot of people from the board at Hirsch today. Last night, on tv Tsome children said she has been trying to make the school better ever since she been there, were lying. She has been there almost 7 years and each year the school has seen a decrease in enrollment. Also, how can the students state that she has been trying to do a good job “since she has been there” and she was there when THEY GOT THERE. Therefore, they were probably paid. The principal is not above that. If they would investigate a little deeper, they will find that the principal has numerous complaints against her from the union, eeoc, and inspector general office. She states that the alderperson and her are close friends and she gives a hefty donation to her fund. Her complaints are for grade changing, attendance padding and a host of other issues. Not to mention that the books are raggedy.


    The school use to be great when I moved out here but over time it changed. Dr. Parker and her ap was great but I have never heard anything good about the one they have now. I own a building in the area. Last year two of my renters moved because the school was so bad. One renter moved because they keep jumping on her daughter. One moved to Calumet City to get away. They have a bad principal over there too. Could that be the reason the school is so bad?
