Flagstaff police responded to a fatal stabbing incident between two adult men outside Killip Elementary School Thursday afternoon and are searching for one suspect.
All students and after-school program participants are safe and were being released only to their parents, who were told to pick their children up at the north entrance of the school.
According to Flagstaff Police Department, officers received a call around 3 p.m. about a fight involving a knife near Killip Elementary School, which is on Sixth Avenue in Sunnyside. One adult man was stabbed. He was transported to Flagstaff Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.
Police are looking for the other suspect in the fight. Witnesses have described the other man as Native American, with a white or gray hat, black hoodie and black pants. Police are investigating the matter.
Flagstaff Unified School District Relations Coordinator Karin Eberhard said the incident had nothing to do with the school itself. Parents should expect a call from the school about the incident.
