TUCSON, AZ - Authorities say a Tucson high school student who was arguing with another teenager was stabbed after the argument near the school pool turned physical.

School district spokeswoman Cara Rene says the stabbing happened at about 3 p.m. Friday near the Catalina High School swimming pool. The boy's injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Tucson police spokeswoman Sgt. Maria Hawke tells the Arizona Daily Star that a 16-year-old Catalina High 10th-grader was arguing with a teen boy who wasn't a student about a girl student.

The injured boy was taken to a hospital for treatment.
