Officers found a 17-year-old who had been stabbed in the back. His wounds were non-life-threatening, and he was brought to the hospital, police said. Police said that a 15-year-old was later brought to the hospital with a potentially life-threatening injury sustained in the fight.

As more law enforcement got to the school, bystanders pointed out suspects involved in the fight.

An officer started chasing the suspects and when he turned a corner, he heard gunfire and saw a muzzle flash, according to police. Three shell casings were later recovered from the intersection.

The 16-year-old was arrested and officers recovered a Glock handgun with a 50-round drum magazine.

The stabbing suspect, a 17-year-old, has a court hearing Oct. 25 in Stearns County.
