MILILANI, Hawaii (AP) — Two 16-year-olds were stabbed and seriously wounded at a Hawaii high school Monday.

Police confirmed to school officials that a suspect, who is not one of the wounded, was in custody, said Lindsay Chambers, a spokeswoman for the Hawaii Department of Education.

A boy and girl were taken to a hospital in serious condition after the stabbing at Mililani High School on central Oahu, Honolulu Emergency Medical Services spokeswoman Shayne Enright said.

They are expected to survive, Enright said.
