DORCHESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - One student was arrested and another student was taken to the hospital after a stabbing at TechBoston Academy in Dorchester Wednesday afternoon, police said.

The fight broke out in the library just after noon, according to school officials. An 18-year-old student stabbed a classmate in the upper chest.

The classmate was taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries and the 18-year-old student was arrested, police said. School officials said police recovered the weapon.

“This is not good news. You see what I mean? They are kids,” said parent Jimmy Jniver. “They are a bunch of innocents.”

The school, which serves students in grades six through 12, is on Peacevale Road in Boston.

“They need more security at the school, like policemen to help the kids that don’t get into any trouble,” another parent said.
