1 killed, 2 injured in Fraser stabbing; police arrest 3 juveniles
Fraser — Three juveniles were in police custody after a stabbing Tuesday in Fraser left one person dead, two injured and forced nearby schools to go into lockdown.
Fraser Department of Public Safety officers responded to an assault at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday in the area of Garfield and Klein, according to a news release.
Three people were stabbed; all were taken to the hospital, according to the release. One of the victims died at the hospital from their injuries.
In a letter to Fraser Public Schools families Wednesday, Superintendent Carrie Wozniak said the victim was a Fraser High School student.
"Out of respect for the family, the district is not releasing the name. We extend our sympathy to everyone involved in this tragic situation," she said. "Additionally, we will not be providing any further details on the individuals who were injured or placed in custody as this is a police matter."
Fraser Patrol Division Cmdr. Lt. Dave Bisby said the department would not release the ages, genders or hometowns of the victims. Samantha Kretzschmar, director for the Fraser Department of Public Safety, did not respond for a comment.
The three juveniles are in custody while the Macomb County Prosecutor's Office reviews the case.
The stabbing did not occur at Fraser schools, but because of how close the incident was to the campuses, the schools went into lockdown Tuesday until the suspects were in custody. The lockdown was "brief," according to the press release.
