Wesley student stabbed

A near fatal stabbing incident has left Lamar Mortis, a third form student of Wesley College, in a serious but stable condition after being assaulted by a fellow schoolmate on campus.  Both young men got into an altercation around seven-thirty this morning before classes began. Mortis was stabbed on the left side of the chest.  The incident, according to Police Press Officer Fitzroy Yearwood, may have been the result of bullying as a parent had approached him a few weeks ago to register a complaint on the matter.  In a statement given to police following the incident Mortis admitted that he was a part of a group that was involved in a previous verbal exchange with other students although it has not been ascertained whether he was directly involved in that altercation.  Earlier this year, school authorities busted the accused minor when he showed up to school with a firearm.  Our attempts at getting an official comment from the school’s administration have been fruitless.

    So this …. kept going after the forth form student, fourth form student kept retreating and WENT AS FAR AS TRYING TO GET THE POLICE INVOLVED…

    But third form …. kept pushing his luck to the point where he went looking for the four form kid who by now due to the threats to his life via text message and verbal has decided to arm himself and prepare to defend himself…

    The stage is set third form …. goes to forth form looking for a fight and he gets his fight… I AM SORRY TO DISAPOINT SOME OF YOU BUT I AM IN THE OPINION THAT THE FOURTH FORM KID WAS JUSTIFIED IN USING THE AMOUNT OF FORCE HE USED IN ORDER TO STOP HIS ATTACKER.

    you people need to stop minding people business because you don’t know nothing… instead of you get to the bottom of how the altercation and everything started, you are taking sides,(wont call none!) but yea this Fourth form kid was to get expelled from a long time ago.. for THAT REASON HE HAD TOOK A GUN AT SCHOOL!!! maybe the school administrator didn’t want to call attention to their school, but this time it did!!!
