A School Resource Officer at a Gwinnett County, GA, middle school took a 13-year-old student into custody for stabbing a teacher with a butcher’s knife at Trickum Middle School.

Principal Ryan Queen said in an email to parents, “The student reportedly called the teacher over and then struck her in the chest area with an 8-inch butcher knife that he had in his bookbag. Help was called and while our SRO was responding to the room the young man grabbed another student. Our SRO was able to enter the classroom and disarm him without harm to anybody else. I am very thankful to our SRO for her handling of this situation, as well as to our teachers and students for their response.”

The school has not yet named the teacher who was wounded or the officer who came to her aid.
