BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The case for a juvenile offender charged in connection with the stabbing at McKinley High School is moving to a grand jury.
At an appearance originally scheduled as a felony hearing, Erie County Family Court Judge Kelly A. Brinkworth announced a grand jury has acted in the case Wednesday.
The teen is charged with second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault.
A bail hearing was held Monday for the 17-year-old whose name is being withheld due to his age.
Judge Brinkworth ordered the teen to be held without bail, citing a flight risk, that the alleged offender fled the scene and is not a United States citizen.
It was revealed by prosecutors that the 14-year-old victim was stabbed in the colon, diaphragm, and kidney.
They allege a camera caught the juvenile approaching the victim just prior to the assault.
A second 17-year-old suspect is also in custody in connection to the shooting of a security guard during the attack.
