2008-02-19 00:00

A PORT Shepstone pupil was killed and another seriously injured during an argument.

Police spokeswoman Superintendent Zandra Hechter said two pupils from Nkonke High School were with a group of friends when an argument broke out on Friday night near Murchison in Port Shepstone. “It is unknown what they were fighting about, but the one pupil was stabbed in the chest, while the other was seriously injured,” she said.

Soon after the incident, the girlfriend of the injured boy ran to the Gamalakhe area to hide.

“A teacher from her school picked up the girl and a friend and took them back to the school. When other pupils saw the teacher, they became unruly,” she said.

Police were called in to control the pupils, who stoned several police vehicles. One pupil was arrested.
