One of the young women stabbed in Abbotsford Secondary School today has succumbed to her injuries.

Officers were called to the school shortly after 2 p.m. on November 1st. Both victims, students at the school, were immediately taken to hospital and their families were notified.

Abbotsford Secondary, as well as Abbotsford Middle School, were locked down as police took a young man into custody.

Police could not give an update on if he was a student of the school where the stabbing happened, his age, or his name. There’s no word on a motive or whether or not the suspect knew the victims.

Abbotsford Police Chief Bob Rich says the second victim remains in stable condition. A video was posted to YouTube showing the stabbing. The website has taken the video down but investigators are asking anyone who may have a copy of the video to stop sharing it.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team will take over the case.

Abbotsford Secondary School will be closed today, but councillors will be made available to students and staff.
