A 14-year-old boy has been accused of stabbing his classmate with a pair of scissors for being mean to him in Yoshino, Nara Prefecture, Japan on Monday, May 23.

On Monday, at around 10:50 a.m., while students were enjoying their recess break, the accused 14-year-old boy and the victim reportedly erupted into a heated argument. However, during the confrontation, in a fit of rage, the teen suspect allegedly pulled out a pair of scissors and stabbed the victim twice in the back, Japan Today reported.

A teacher who heard the victim's screams for help rushed to the student's aid and subdued the alleged assailant. Meanwhile, other school staff members called emergency services, and the victim was rushed to a hospital where doctors said his wounds were not life-threatening.

Following the incident, the alleged attacker was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault. When the officers questioned him, the accused claimed that the victim had said something mean to him, which provoked him to stab his classmate.

On Tuesday, at around 9 a.m., Missouri police officers responded to Northeast Middle School after being alerted of a 14-year-old boy, later identified as Manuel J. Guzman, found with multiple stab wounds in the school's bathroom. Law enforcement immediately rushed the boy to a hospital for treatment. However, Guzman subsequently succumbed to his fatal injuries and was declared dead later that day.

Following the incident, the authorities launched an investigation into the stabbing and took another student at the school into custody in connection with the killing. The unnamed underage suspect has been charged with murder in the first degree, armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon through the juvenile court in Jackson County.

"It's tragic. That was my little cousin. I didn't get to say goodbye. I didn't even get to say goodbye," said Juan Guzman, cousin of Manuel Guzman.

Juan added that, without Guzman, it won't be the same when the family gets together.

"He wanted to do a lot of things. He had so many goals and they got taken from him. He can't even achieve them," Juan remembered.
