MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Police in Mobile say a 17-year-old LeFlore High School student is facing assault charges after they say he stabbed two younger students at the school.

Mobile police spokeswoman Ashley Rains tells Al.com (https://bit.ly/1xIea7L) that the 17-year-old came to school with a knife on Thursday. Police say he had been part of an ongoing argument with other students. Authorities didn’t elaborate on the nature of the dispute.

Police responded around 1 p.m. Thursday to the school, where authorities said a 15-year-old had been stabbed three times. Police said a 16-year-old also suffered a single stab wound.

Both of the wounded students were taken to hospitals. Rains said their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

Jail records show that the 17-year-old suspect faces two counts of second-degree assault.
