DAVIE, Fla. – A student used a pair of scissors to attack another student during a fight at Nova High School on Friday afternoon, according to the Davie Police Department. 

Davie Fire Rescue responded to the school at 3600 College Ave., and paramedics found a teenage boy with a wounded leg and took him to Westside Regional Medical Center. 

Witnesses said the fight was after teachers dismissed students about 4:20 p.m., near the portables. Officers found and questioned the attacker.
