LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Officials say a central Kentucky high school student has been injured in a stabbing.

Fayette County Public Schools spokeswoman Lisa Deffendall said the Bryan Station High School student was treated for non-life-threatening injuries on Thursday after being stabbed by another student with a pocket knife.

Media report that Principal James McMillin sent a notification to parents calling the event an "isolated incident." In the notification, McMillin said the student accused in the stabbing was charged with first-degree assault.

Lexington police spokeswoman Brenna Angel said the investigation would be handled by the school's law enforcement.
