ELMORE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -

The Elmore County Public School System is prepared to take action after a stabbing a Holtville High School following Friday night's football game against Elmore County High School.

The suspect, Michael Lasiter, 17, is charged with second degree assault for reportedly stabbing another 17-year-old near the new gym on Holtville’s campus.  Lasiter is a student at Holtville High School and remains in the Elmore County Detention Facility on a $10,000 bond, according to court records. 

The victim was transported to the hospital with a stab wound to the left torso near his kidney. 

Elmore County School Superintendent Dr. Andre Harrison issued a statement Wednesday confirming the central office is aware of the stabbing, calling it a “terrible incident.”

“Because of student privacy rights, we cannot disclose detailed information,” Harrison stated. “But we are fortunate that the school administrators and the Elmore County sheriff’s deputies were present to provide security during the football game. They were immediately on scene after the incident occurred and were able to respond to the situation quickly.”

Despite Lasiter being held in the Elmore County Detention Facility, he could also face punishment from the school system.

“The student was taken into custody, and because this incident occurred at a school function, we will also follow our normal disciplinary procedures,” Harrison said.

Harrison stated the system’s thoughts and prayers are with all the students involved in the incident.
