A Kennewick teen is under arrest after a fight in the Kennewick High School parking lot that resulted in one teen being stabbed.

In a press release from the Kennewick Police Department, Officers were called in to investigate a stabbing that had taken place at Kennewick High School.

According to the report, this is what happened:

On June 2, 2021, at about 2:40 pm, Kennewick Police Officers responded to a local hospital for the report of an assault with a weapon that had just occurred.

Upon contact with the 16-year-old male victim, officers learned that he had been stabbed while in a fight involving several other males in a parking lot at Kennewick High School.

The stab wound was non-life-threatening but the victim remains in a local hospital for observation.

During the investigation, it was determined that the fight that occurred in the parking lot was a continuation of a previously unreported fight that had occurred the week prior in Keewaydin Park and an additional fight that had occurred earlier in the day.

Using witness information and security camera footage, officers were able to identify 18-year-old Kennewick High School Student, Miguel Silva as the suspect responsible for the assault and that the victim had not been the instigator of the fight, but was rather attempting to intervene.

There were no other injuries reported as a result of this fight.

A search warrant was conducted at Miguel Silva's residence this afternoon and he was arrested without incident for the alleged crime of Assault 1st Degree.

The 16-year-old who was injured is a juvenile so their name hasn't been released to the public. KPD says it's an ongoing investigation and more arrests may occur as a result.
