Authorities are searching for a 16-year-old girl who is believed to have been involved in a stabbing at Pius X High School in Lincoln Monday.
Police say Sarah Piccolo is suspected of stabbing 17-year-old Ellen Kopetzky in one of the school's bathrooms around 9:45 a.m.
Officials are now searching for Piccolo, who left the building following the incident. Lincoln Police Capt. Michon
Morrow said that as of Tuesday morning there had been no
sighting of Piccolo or the car she's driving, a gray 1992 Buick Park Avenue.
Kopetzky received cuts to her face and was taken to the hospital where she had undergone surgery. Her family has issued a statement asking people to pray for Piccolo and her family and to treat them with respect and mercy.
