Teen Charged in Deadly School Stabbing


There will be metal detectors in place at P.S. 67 and the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation in the Bronx this morning after a deadly stabbing on Wednesday.

Students will be screened, after the attack that left one student dead, another in critical condition and a third in police custody.

“There will be immediately random screening done with metal detectors,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

Abel Cedeno, 18, was charged last night and mouthed the word “yes” when asked by reporters if he was bullied.  He’s expected to be in court on Thursday.

Tensions had been building for weeks, resulting in a fight during a third period class.  Matthew McCree, 15, was stabbed in the chest and killed while a 16-year-old student was critically injured.

“The perpetrator walked out of the room, was confronted by a counselor in the hallway where she asked for the knife and recovered the knife.  He then walked into the assistant principal’s office and sat there,” Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said.

Mayor de Blasio said this is the first person killed in a New York City public school in more than 20 years.
