    Authorities were investigating after a 15-year-old boy was stabbed twice in Lauderhill.

    The teen was found in the middle of a street in the area of Oakland Park Boulevard and NW 56th Avenue, a Lauderhill Fire-Rescue spokesperson said.

    Lauderhill Police said there was a fight at a high school, which continued after school ended. The boy was stabbed in the torso but was expected to survive. Police said they were looking for four classmates allegedly involved.

    "The situation is a carryover from an incident that happened in Oakland Park, we believe, where they go to school," Lauderhill Police spokesman Capt. Rick Rocco said.

    It wasn't immediately known which school was involved.

    The incident occurred at about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday in a residential area near Oakland Park Boulevard and Florida's Turnpike.

    Authorities said they found the teenager bleeding near the median on NW 56th Avenue.

    "It's ridiculous, the kids need to know respect and stop hurting each other," local resident Veria Brown said.

    The teen was taken to Broward Health Medical Center.

    "To be that brazen in the middle of a well-populated area, well-traveled area, is certainly a concern for everybody, the residents and police alike," Rocco said. "Nobody wants this violence in their community."
