BARBOURVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The principal of a southern Kentucky high school says charges are unlikely to be filed after a student suffered an injury after being hit by a knife on school grounds.

Knox Central High School chief Tim Melton sent a letter home to parents last week saying the injury appears to have been an accident and no harm or threat was intended.

The letter also stated because the incident involved a knife, the Barbourville Police Department was contacted to assist with the investigation.

Barbourville Police Det. Steve Owens told The Times-Tribune the department plans to review the incident and will discuss any additional action if it is warranted.

The identity of the two students involved has not been be divulged.
