Abel Cedeno, NYC Teen, Arrested On Murder Charges After Fatally Stabbing Classmate

A 15-year-old student was fatally stabbed at a Bronx school police said

At a news conference with police and school officials, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said everyone in the community has been affected by the violence. But he didn't specify why, Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Thursday.

Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina added, "Every parent has the right to expect that when they send their children to school in the morning, they'll come back at 3 o'clock in very good shape".

Next, Cedeno allegedly started stabbing a 16-year-old boy in the chest and side.

The stabbing allegedly occurred during third period at the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation, a middle and high school in the Bronx.

Some studies have found that black and Hispanic students in charter schools are more likely to attend predominantly nonwhite schools than their peers in traditional schools, partly because charter schools tend to be located in urban areas and are often established specifically to serve low-income students of color.

Laboy was said by police to have pulled through surgery Wednesday and was in stable condition.

Abel Cedeno has been arrested on murder, manslaughter and other charges.

Boyce said that the 18-year-old student "has made statements to us explaining what happened". The dispute escalated Wednesday, culminating with the attack about 30 minutes into a history class.

Otto Warmbier was 'systematically tortured' by North Korea, say parents
Questions continue to swirl around how this happened - and specifically, what happened to him in North Korean custody. The report stated Warmbier's body was "well-developed, well-nourished" and had no signs of torture.

After the stabbing, Cedeno walked out of the classroom, gave the switchblade to a guidance counsellor in the hallway, and went and sat in the assistant principal's office awaiting police.

A 15-year-old boy, identified by the New York Post as Matthew McCree, died at St. Barnabas Hospital shortly after being stabbed in the chest.

Students described tense moments huddled in closets and in classrooms while the school was locked down, wondering what was happening.

Hornbeck said Cedeno often returned home in tears after enduring the bullying of McCree and the second stabbing victim Ariane Laboy, 16. City officials say security will be much tighter on Thursday and metal detectors will be used.

The school does not have metal detectors although police recorded 11 public safety episodes at the school in the first half of the year.

"With no reaction from the school, Abel felt no other way out", Hornback said.

The father rushed to the school, where he saw his daughter, a kindergartener, through a window waving to him. "I guess he did that kind of to scare them off, not to actually hurt anyone", she said.

"I tried to called the school".
