    A teenage girl was stabbed Friday morning at Fairmont Heights High School in Capitol Heights, Md.

    Two girls were involved in an altercation, and one of the girls stabbed the other, said Brian Coleman, public information officer for Prince George's County.

    Rescue workers responded to the school in the 1400 block of Nye Street shortly before 9 a.m. The victim was transported to an area hospital with trauma to the upper body, although her injuries are non-life-threatening.

    The other girl was transported to the county jail for processing. She was charged as a juvenile with first-degree assault, News4's Pat Collins reported.

    A student told NBC4's Megan McGrath that the fight was in a third-floor hallway. The fight stemmed from an argument on Twitter yesterday, News4's Pat Collins reported.

    The argument apparently heated up shortly after the students arrived for the school day, with a 15-year-old girl stabbing a 17-year-old girl in the stomach with a paring knife.

    Students were held in their classrooms Friday morning. Several parents who heard what happened went to the school to pick up their children.
