There was a stabbing in a high school in North Carolina.
A 15-year-old student was fatally knifed by a 14-year-old classmate on Monday during a wild, caught-on-camera brawl inside a North Carolina high school.
The melee inside the gym at Southeast Raleigh High School also landed a second student, 16, in the hospital with a non-life-threatening stab wound, according to local reports.
The teen accused of stabbing two of his peers was arrested and charged with murder on a juvenile petition, WRAL reported, citing authorities.
Part of the fight caught on camera shows two students face to face before a youngster in a black jacket throws a punch at a student in a red jacket, who responds with his own punch.
Sherelle McLaughlin told WRAL that her son, who is the alleged stabber, was only defending himself.
The video became publicly available.

I have to say, I agree with the mom. This looks like self defense to me.
The kid was backing away from the kid in the blue hoodie, when the kid in the blue hoodie threw a punch.
The kid retreated and was followed.
He was thrown to the ground where he was stomped on and kicked by a mob.
He then stabs his attackers and runs away.
Getting knocked down and stomped on is often a death sentence.
This kid stabbing his way out of getting his head kicked in.
I think he was justified in using lethal force against a potentially lethal attack.
When he was down, he stabbed his attackers in what what available to him.
I’m going to assume he hit the femoral artery on the kid he stabbed in the thigh.
The kid in the blue hoodie looks like he got stabbed in the asshole a bunch.
