PEOPLE learns the older victim remains in critical but stable condition at a NY area hospital. The suspect complied and then waited for police in the principal's office, New York Police Department Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said.

The suspect had been involved with an escalating "back-and-forth" with the victims for the past two weeks, Boyce said.

The alleged killer is Abel Cedeno, an 18-year-old from the Bronx, according to the New York Post.

The student accused of stabbing a classmate to death and seriously injuring another during history class was different from other guys and had been picked on since the school year started, fellow students and police said.

"The defendant admits to purchasing a (switchblade) knife two weeks before online and stabbing two people", Assistant District Attorney Nancy Borko said.

Sources tell NY1 Arian Laboy, 16, was also stabbed and rushed to the hospital, where he is in critical condition.
