One person was killed and two others were injured Tuesday in a stabbing near a Bakersfield high school.
According to preliminary information, the incident occurred about 2:40 p.m. near Foothill Road and Morning Drive. Foothill High School was reportedly placed on lockdown.
A person of interest has been detained, and authorities said they might have recovered the weapon used in the attack.
