Edith Dalton James High To Receive New Security Equipment Following Fatal Stabbing

During a visit to the institution Friday morning, Education Minister Ruel Reid announced that the school will be provided with a walk-through scan that will automatically detect metals, as well as closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras and other equipment.

This follows the fatal stabbing at the school on Thursday. Clive Mattison, 15, was stabbed during an altercation with another male student.

“One student was walking past and bounce off the other student watch; the (owner of the watch) told the other student to pick up the watch and an argument developed,” one alleged eyewitness said.

The watch owner was then reportedly stabbed by the other student. He was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The minister revealed that the measures will be provided through a grant from GraceKennedy.
