A 13-year-old has been taken into custody for stabbing a boy of the same age on Wednesday, 10 January, at the White Oak Middle School in Porter, Texas.
According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office (MCSO), the incident took place at around 4.10pm local time (10.10pm GMT) within the school's grounds, Fox 26 Houston reported.
The two boys reportedly got into a verbal argument which led to one of them stabbing the other in the stomach.
After being stabbed, the victim ran to his home which is about a block away from school. He told his mother about what had happened and was immediately taken to the Texas Children's Hospital in Houston with non-life-threatening injuries, deputies said, according to the KPRC-TV station.
The victim's mother contacted the Sheriff's office after which the authorities began their search for the accused in the area.
According to the Sheriff's office, the boy was eventually located at a nearby store and was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Both the teens are related to each other, according to MCSO, the KPRC-TV station reported, and investigations are on.
In a similar incident, a 19-year-old Colorado boy was recently accused of stabbing his stepfather to death and then posting the incident on Snapchat.
The accused, Nickolas Khalil Vinson, killed his step-father Oscar Lemar Owensby, 50, at their home on 15 December. The stabbing is said to have taken place following an argument over chores and contribution to household expenses.
"Hey guys, I just killed him. I just killed him. I just killed him," Vinson could be heard saying in the Snapchat video.
Owensby, on the other hand, could be seen face down and covered in blood on the floor as a woman is heard screaming next to him, "Lemar, can you hear me? Can you hear me? No!" court documents said.
