A 17-year-old Baltimore boy has been charged as an adult with attempted first-degree murder, among other charges, in the stabbing of a fellow student at Heritage High School on Monday, according to police.

Darrell Johns, of the first block of North Potomac Street in the Patterson Park neighborhood, is being held without bond. A preliminary hearing in the case has been scheduled for Oct. 30.

The student he allegedly stabbed, who has not been identified, was treated by a school nurse and taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital after the incident about 10:45 a.m. Monday, city school officials said in a statement released five hours after the stabbing.

School officials did not release the grade levels of the students.
