Shortly before 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, a deputy with the Frederick County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to Thurmont Middle School for an altercation that occurred between two male students. Sgt. Jennifer Bailey said as a result a 13 year old had to be flown to John Hopkins Children's Hospital. He was later released that night. Sgt. Bailey said the other juvenile, who is 14 years old, was referred to the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services on a charge of second degree assault.
The incident involves juveniles, so only limited details can be released, authorities said.
