Two Oʻahu teenagers were transported to an emergency room in serious condition and were being treated for apparent stab wounds.

Paramedics responded to an emergency call from Mililani High School just after 10 this morning. An emergency services spokeswoman said the victims, one male and one female and both 16 years old, were injured in their upper bodies.

They are expected to survive their injuries, according to Honolulu Emergency Services.

The state Department of Education said there is a suspect in custody, and the school was initially in lockdown. The students were released at 11:30 a.m.

In a letter to parents and guardians, Mililani High Principal Fred Murphy said police arrested another student in the case.

"A police investigation is ongoing. In order to protect student privacy, our administration cannot disclose additional details," he said.
