7-year-old student slightly injured by student with knife on JCPS bus

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Dixie Elementary student is recovering after he was injured with a knife on a school bus Monday morning.

Dixie Elementary Principal Stephanie Allen says a 10-year-old was showing other students a knife with a 3-inch blade when he somehow cut a 7-year-old student, causing a minor laceration on his right finger tip.

The second grader told school officials about his cut when he arrived at school. He was given first aid and continued with his classes.

JCPS officials are notifying the parents of the students involved. LMPD is assisting with the investigation.

Allen says the student with the knife will be suspended.
