WELLINGTON, Fla. (AP) — School officials in Palm Beach County say a student was stabbed at Polo Park Middle School, and a suspect is in custody.

The student was flown to a hospital Thursday morning. She was treated and released.

Police said the stabbing was an isolated event between two students, but the school was placed on full lockdown for about two hours.

Officials say the suspected attacker was taken into custody almost immediately by a nearby school resource officer.
