Kennedy said two students were involved in an altercation and one of them was stabbed or cut.

Kennedy said all parties to the fight and several witnesses were located and interviewed by the VCU, but claims of self-defense have prevented investigators from making an immediate arrest.

Kennedy said the case will be presented to a grand jury, who will ultimately decide if charges are warranted.

Since no arrests have been made, Kennedy declined to identify the people involved by name.
