Parent Charged in School Bus Stabbing


(Claiborne County, MS) — After two students were stabbed on a school bus in Claiborne County Thursday morning, the parent of the attacker has been arrested. The attack stemmed from a dispute among three students. According to authorities, the suspect’s brother was involved in an altercation with another male student when the suspect approached with a weapon and wounded both parties. One of the wounded students was treated and released from a local hospital but according to a family member, the other was in serious condition with a collapsed lung. At some point during the disturbance, investigators say 37-year-old George Smith, Jr. arrived at the school bus stop with a weapon.
