One student is dead and another is in the hospital following a stabbing at a North Carolina high school that remains under lockdown.

Two ambulances were seen leaving Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School, each trailed by a police vehicle, early Monday afternoon, while yellow police tape stretched across a doorway.

One student died at the hospital while the other sustained ‘non-life-threatening’ injuries, according to officials.

Police said another student was in custody in connection with the stabbing.

The initial call came in at around 11am, when a school resource officer called for EMS and backup, saying a student had been stabbed.

Shortly after, another student was found with injuries consistent with a stabbing.

‘He’s losing consciousness right now. We’re in the main gym,’ a woman’s voice was heard saying over law enforcement radio traffic.

A male’s voice said, ‘Can you make sure the administrators put the school on lockdown?’

According to Raleigh police, a fight had broken out involving several students. The  incident was described as a ‘serious assault’ in a social media post. 

However, the department added: ‘The scene is secure, and this appears to be an isolated incident. Please avoid the area around the school.’

A follow-up message informed parents that the school would remain under a Code Red lockdown due to the ongoing investigation, but dismissal would occur at the usual time.

The lockdown was in effect until 2.20pm local time. Carpool students were taken by bus to Walnut Creek Amphitheater to be reunited with their families.

It is unclear what led up to the fight, or how many students were involved.
