(CMR) The principal at John Gray High School has issued a statement on Monday afternoon sharing that reports of a campus stabbing were untrue and confirming that “no students were injured.” It appears that past students went on the campus ground, and it then spilled over outside of the campus as well. The commotion had many parents and students worried about their own safety, with some initially sharing that a stabbing had taken place.
He shared the following statement:
The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) were called to John Gray High School (JGHS) at approximately 12:10 pm today after two ex-students entered the campus at lunchtime and challenged a Year 11 student regarding a recent incident involving two female students. No students were injured as a result of the incident.
JGHS staff, security and the RCIPS moved quickly to restore order.
Initial reports were that a 17-year-old male had gone on John Gray High School campus Monday afternoon and stabbed a male student. Exclusively CMR sources indicate that he was intervening in some dispute with his younger sister. It was shared that one of the parties took a knife to the confrontation at the school and then subsequently “jumped off” on some local boys off Walker's Road.
The male reportedly went on campus along with his pregnant girlfriend stemming from some dispute with the younger sister that occurred over the weekend at Camana Bay. He has since been arrested and taken away by the police. Sources noted that he was a previous student at John Gray himself and graduated last year from CIFEC.
