OAK LAWN (CBS) — Police responded to a fight outside Oak Lawn high school after a boys basketball game Friday night and one student appeared to suffer cuts on his back, possibly from a knife.
The apparent stabbing reportedly happened after the game. It was senior night for the team, which defeated Reavis, 55-36. Officials said the student, a junior, tried to break up the fight and then noticed the wounds on his back. The wounds were superficial and it was unclear whether the slashes were from a knife or some other sort of weapon.
