LYNN, Mass. (AP) - Police say a 16-year-old boy has been stabbed outside a Massachusetts high school and the suspect remains at large.

The boy was stabbed near the outdoor basketball courts behind Lynn English High School at about 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The victim was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston with a stab wound to the chest and is expected to survive.

The school’s boys’ basketball team was inside at the time, but it’s unclear whether the victim has any affiliation with Lynn English.

Witnesses reported hearing arguing before the stabbing.

Lynn Police Lt. Dave Brown says it appears there was an altercation involving several youths who knew each other.
