Poinciana teen stabbed seven times over Facebook post

Kevin Concepcion, a 16-year-old Discovery Intermediate School student, has been charged with attempted murder following an argument with a younger student. On Monday, April 21, just outside of the Poinciana school, the two teens began arguing because of a post Concepcion made on Facebook over the weekend. Throughout the school day, the younger student, who has not been named, made attempts to confront the 16-year-old about the Facebook post, but was ignored.

The confrontation the 14-year-old was trying to make happen all day finally came to fruition at about 6:45 p.m. Monday evening. The younger student approached Concepcion and a fight broke out between the two. Concepcion pulled a pocket knife and stabbed the 14-year-old seven times, including a couple of swipes to the neck.

According to a witness, “[the 16-year-old] was holding him [the 14-year-old] by the neck, trying to choke him out and stabbing him.”

The 14- year-old was transported to the Osceola Regional Medical Center. His injuries, while serious, are not life threatening.  

Concepcion was transported to the Orange County Juvenile Detention Center, where he was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and seven cases of aggravated battery.

This is not the only recent case of teen Facebook-rage stabbings. Earlier this month, a Mexican teen stabbed her friend 65 times because of photos that were posted to Facebook. Her friend was not as lucky as the Poinciana teen, sadly, and died as a result of her injuries.
