MARRERO (AP) — The Jefferson Parish

Sheriff's Office says a 15-year-old student was hospitalized with stab

wounds and a 17-year-old

was arrested after a fight at John Ehret High School in Marrero.

A release from Sheriff Newell Normand said

Detective Brian Johnson was notified of the altercation by a teacher.

The fight

followed an ongoing disagreement between the two girls. The news

release said that the 17-year-old told Johnson that she was

approached by the younger girl Monday morning outside the school

cafeteria. An argument broke out. The older girl is alleged

to have taken a pair of scissors from her book bag and stabbed the

younger girl.

The older girl was booked with aggravated battery and illegal carrying of a concealed weapon. The 15-year-old was reported

in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
