A 16-year-old female Chicago Public Schools student was stabbed by a classmate inside a classroom Tuesday morning.
Police report that the stabbing occurred during an in-class fight around 10:35 a.m. at Hirsch High School in the 7700 block of South Ingleside in the Grand Crossing neighborhood on the city's South Side, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Paramedics responded to the scene and took the stabbing victim to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to the Chicago Tribune.
CBS Chicago reports that a pair of scissors was the weapon used in the incident.
The girl's condition has since been upgraded to stable, according to the Sun-Times. No charges have been filed in the incident as of Tuesday afternoon, though the stabbing suspect has been taken into custody.
Last week, one student was killed in another stabbing at a Chicago high school. Chris Wormely, 17, was killed following an altercation with another 17-year-old student. A 16-year-old trying to break up the fight was wounded in the incident.
