A 17-year-old girl was stabbed Tuesday night during a fight in the parking lot of a Silver Spring high school after a basketball game let out, Montgomery County police said.
Investigators are looking for two female students from another Silver Spring high school who are believed to have been involved in the fight.
Both boys and girls basketball teams from Kennedy and Northwood high schools were scheduled to play games Tuesday night at Northwood, according to schedules on the school’s website.
Police said they received a report of a stabbing at the school at about 9 p.m. as the game was ending. A 17-year-old Montgomery Blair High School student was found suffered from several stab wounds to her lower torso. She was taken to a hospital with not life-threatening injuries.
Police think the stabbing was the result of a fight between two girls from Kennedy High School and the stabbing victim’s friend, all spectators at the game. The 17-year-old saw her friend involved in an altercation with another girl and attempted to intervene but was stabbed in the process, police said.
