The fight, which had been brewing since the beginning of the school year about two weeks ago, occurred in a fifth-floor classroom, NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said. Boyce says the three students had been arguing for several days prior to the stabbing.

The two students were stabbed at the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation in the Bronx by an 18-year-old man, police told AM New York.

"They were harassing him and that's when he did what he did", said the friend, who would only identify herself as Tanaisha B. She said she graduated from the school in June and knew the suspect "really well". Police have not released the names of the victims or suspect.

The boy who died, a 16-year-old, was stabbed in the chest, according to the police. It was not immediately clear whether the attacker was also a student.
