South Texas girl, 13, allegedly stabbed girl, 12, at school

A 13-year-old South Texas girl has been accused of taking a knife to school and stabbing a 12-year-old girl during an argument.

Corpus Christi police detained the older girl following Tuesday afternoon's incident at Flour Bluff Junior High School.
The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports authorities say the younger girl has injuries not believed to be life-threatening.

School administrators did not immediately say what apparently prompted the fight. Police say the 13-year-old girl faces a juvenile charge of aggravated assault.

A school statement says that student safety is always the utmost concern.

Names of the minors have not been released.
